National History Day is an interdisciplinary project-based learning curriculum for students in grades 6-12 that incorporates inquiry to engage students and help them develop 21st century college and career ready skills necessary to become responsible citizens and compete in a global society.

The NHD DE State Contest is a day long event for teachers, students, parents, and community members to gather and recognize the accomplishments of the students participating in the NHD program.

Usually held in late winter/early spring, the state contest is a day-long event. NHD DE provides training and guidance for new and experienced judges.

No experience necessary to volunteer. All we require is a love of supporting students.

Judges review student projects, interview contestants, select the winners who will advance to the national contest, and provide constructive feedback.
