National History Day in Kentucky
National History Day-Feb. 28 and March 7 contests
National History Day in Kentucky isan annual program that KHS sponsors for its Kentucky Junior Historical Society members and other Kentucky students. Annual participation typically is nearly 3,000 students (grades 4-12) from across the state. Either individually or as part of a team, each student conducts original research around a topic of his or her own choosing which supports a theme provided by the National History Day program. This year’s theme is "Leadership and Legacy in History." Expect a wide variety of topics.
The Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) still needs some judges for two National History Day contests: one in Morehead (Feb. 28) and one at Northern Kentucky University (March 7). Please see the attached document for more information.
