In response to the COVID19 pandemic, Nebraska National History Day will be virtual / online instead of at Nebraska Wesleyan University.    A virtual (online) contest allows student work to be reviewed, feedback sent to teachers and students, and selections made for the National Contest.

What do you need to know?    All entries submitted online and the deadline is Monday, April 6 at 10:00pm CST. All teachers will be communicated with via mass email.  Students can be part of the communication link if they provide a personal email (theirs or their parents) and select "yes, keep me in the loop" in their registration.  We will also post information on the website here, and in the registration system as applicable.

Here are the current guidelines - please remember adjustments may need to be made:

If anything appears confusing, reach out to Shari Sorenson ( or 402-465-2439).  Do know it is a work in process.  Thank you for your understanding and patience.
