It's not just a day
it's an experience!"
Youth Division Virtual Workshop
Nebraska National History Day will be offering a Youth Program at the state contest for the 2023 contest season. Teachers interested in using the program have an opportunity to participate in a free Youth Centered NHD Workshop with Amy Diegel, a youth program advocate and experienced NHD teacher! She will provide you with materials for a parent night in addition to ways you can incorporate the program into your classroom or after-school program for a rewarding experience for students. See how the NHD program fits with required Nebraska history lessons and teaches academic skills that apply across subjects, building the foundation for excellent research skills.

Competition is not a required component of the program but does expose your students to work by others that will inspire them! It also gives a deadline, requires students to build skills in time management, and provides personal interaction through the interview process. A youth competition will be offered at the state level only. The state contest is held at Nebraska Wesleyan University in early April. Some of the contest components may vary slightly from the Junior and Senior division which are eligible for the National Contest held in June.
