National History Day: Citywide Competition 2019

Wednesday, March 13, and Thursday, March 14, 2019, 9 a.m. – 1:15 p.m.

The National Constitution Center will host this year’s citywide National History Day competition for Philadelphia. Each year, thousands of middle and high school students and teachers across the United States participate in National History Day, a yearlong educational program that culminates in a national contest every June. Students compete in a local contest, the winners move on to a state competition, and those winners move on to the national competition in Washington, D.C. Along the way, every participant gains first-hand experience conducting historical research and producing a documentary, exhibit, essay, performance, or website.
