National History Day (NHD) is a highly regarded academic program focused on history for 6th to 12th grade students. For librarians it’s an opportunity to engage students in the challenge and thrill of discovery through historical research as well as promote the use of their institutional resources. Panelists will share their experiences in working with students on the regional, state, and national levels of the competition.
