Oregon Historical Society says
Each fall, OHS kicks off the Oregon History Day program alongside half a million students in grades 6-12 across the country. OHS Curator of Education, Kristen Pilgrim, works closely with educators throughout the state, and students use the OHS Research Library and digital assets like the Oregon History Project and Oregon Encyclopedia to conduct research on the annual theme.

The 2017 National History Day® theme is Taking a Stand in History. Students create their project in one of five categories: paper, website, exhibit, performance, or documentary. Students work individually or as a group.

The History Day program includes school, regional, state, and a national competition. Students are selected to go to the state and national contests. The state contest is Saturday, April 22, 2017 at Concordia University in Portland.

The national contest is June 11–15, 2017, near Washington DC. Various scholarships and awards are available. For more information on National History Day®, visit www.nhd.org.

If you would like to participate in History Day, contact Kristen Pilgrim at kristen.pilgrim@ohs.org.
