National History Day
Each year, more than half a million students participate in the NHD contest. At STA, 11th and 8th grade students choose historical topics related to a theme and conduct extensive research through libraries, archives, museums, oral history interviews, and historic sites. After analyzing and interpreting their sources, and drawing conclusions about their topics’ significance in history, students present their work in original papers, Web sites, exhibits, performances, and documentaries.
