The internationally recognized program recently received the National Humanities Medal from President Obama and the National Endowment for the Humanities. NHD is also a local program.

The NHD theme for 2017 is “Taking a Stand in History.”  Throughout the year students have researched and analyzed the topic. Students develop projects based on the theme in one of five categories: video documentaries, exhibits, historical papers, dramatic performances, and websites.  At the regional contest students present their research to teams of judges. The winners of the regional contest will compete at the State History Day conference in Carlisle in May. State History Day is sponsored by the Army Heritage and Education Center in Carlisle.
