Carroll University hosts National History Day contest

March 6, 2017

The 2017 National History Day in Wisconsin competition for the Eastern Region will be held at Carroll University on Saturday, March 25. Organized by the Wisconsin Historical Society, the event is an academic program for students in grades 6 - 12 who are interested in a variety of areas including web design, education, sports, medicine, the arts and journalism to name a few.

Students will present research findings in one of five formats: documentary, exhibit, paper, performance or website. Every year a theme is chosen for students to frame their topics and research around. This year's theme is "Taking a Stand in History."

Each year over 10,000 students around Wisconsin present their ideas to judges and along the way, students compete for honors, awards, and thousands of dollars in scholarships.

Carroll University is looking for volunteers to judge the student competitions on March 25 from approximately 8 a.m. - 2 p.m. Judges will work in teams and receive training on site the day of the event; they do not need to have historical expertise.
