What is National History Day?


Nebraska National History Day (NE:NHD) is a non-profit education program based in Lincoln, NE. Established in 1985, NE:NHD offers academic programs that engage middle- and high-school students throughout Nebraska annually in conducting original research on historical topics of interest. These research-based projects are entered into contests at the local level, where the top student entries have the opportunity to advance to the State Contest at Nebraska Wesleyan University in Lincoln. Top ranking state contest projects have the opportunity to advance to the National Contest held at University of Maryland at College Park.  National History Day seeks to improve the quality of history education by providing professional development opportunities and curriculum materials for educators.
