National History Day 2012
The National Archives at Kansas City is pleased to participate in National History Day! Each year, thousands of middle and high school students and teachers participate in National History Day (NHD), a year-long educational program that culminates in a national contest every June. The National History Day program provides a unique opportunity for students to gain first-hand experience conducting historical research and producing historical exhibits, essays, documentaries, media projects and performances.
Participation in the NHD program begins at the local level, where regional activities feed state and national competitions. Students and teachers are encouraged to take advantage of the rich array of local history resources in our community — libraries, museums, and historic sites — to pursue topics of local, regional, or national interest in conjunction with the 2012 theme: Revolution, Reaction, Reform in History.
Learn more about the 2012 theme, and local events in your area, visit the National History Day web site.
