What Is New Jersey History Day?

New Jersey History Day is not just a day, but every day! It is an affiliate of National History Day (NHD), an exciting education program that engages students in grades 6-12 in the process of discovery and interpretation of historical tropics, making history come alive for students.  Students conduct historical research that leads to dramatic performances, imaginative exhibits, multimedia documentaries, websites, and research papers based on research related to an annual theme. These projects are then evaluated at local, regional, and state competitions that culminate in a national contest every June at the University of Maryland.
