CT History Day Participation

Participate as an individual or in groups in junior and senior divisions in these categories: paper, documentary, exhibit, performance, website. Regional, state, and national competition.
CT History Day is part of National History Day.  Every year NHD frames students' research within a historical theme.  The Annual Theme is chosen from a broad application to state, national or world history and its relevance to ancient history or to the more recent past.


Idea: start or continue a journal about every day living so people in 50 years or more understand how we used objects and how we thought about the world around us.
