National History Day in Montana – Annual State Competition

As of 2023, Montana State University-Bozeman is the new “home” for National History Day in Montana (NHD MT) which is an affiliate of the National History Day© (NHD) nonprofit education organization headquartered at College Park, Maryland.

NHD’s main program is a social studies competition where students in grades 6-12 choose a historic topic related to an annual theme, develop a thesis, and conduct extensive research using sources such as libraries, archives, museums, and interviews. Students then present individually or with a group, in the form of a documentary, exhibit, paper, performance, or website. Students may participate in school-wide or local competitions, then a regional competition, and a state competition. The top two projects in each category, individual and group, in the Junior (grades 6-8) and Senior (grades 9-12) divisions at state, qualify for the national competition in Maryland which is in June.

The Annual State Competition will be held April 6, 2024 at the MSU-Bozeman University campus. The 2024 contest theme is: Turning Points in History!
