National History Day 2023
Students compete at the regional level where the top two winners in each category proceed to the state competition. From there, winning students have the opportunity to move on to the national level competition. National History Day (NHD) engages more than half a million students from around the world as they conduct research and interpret historical topics through the lens of an annual theme.

The History Day methodology supports teachers and schools by aligning curriculum and instructional priorities with State and National Learning Standards while preparing students for college and career readiness. Read the report on how and where NHD aligns with these standards here: http://www.nhd.org/sites/default/files/NHD-and-Common-Core-Final.pdf

National History Day was awarded the prestigious 2011 National Humanities Medal by President Barack Obama.
