National History Day student award winners at the Awards Ceremony.

Kenneth E. Behring National History Day Contest 2015

Every year over 3,ooo students from around the world advance to the Kenneth E. Behring National History Day Contest in College Park, MD. Our judges carefully review student projects and provide feedback about what they did well and how they can improve. NHD is about the journey and while we recognize students who have excelled at the highly competitive national level, students who participate at any level develop communication and critical thinking skills that will benefit them for a lifetime.
