Tennessee History Day is a state affiliate of National History Day (www.nhd.org). Each year, more than half a million students, encouraged by thousands of teachers nationwide participate in the National History Day contest. Students choose historical topics related to a theme and conduct extensive primary and secondary research. They then present their work in original papers, websites, exhibits, performances, or documentaries. The student projects are entered into the History Day competition at the regional level; winners move to the State level; those winners move on to the Kenneth E. Behring National History Day Contest held in June at the University of Maryland at College Park.

If you are interested in participating in History Day as a teacher, students, or volunteer judge, please contact Joy Key at JKey@museumcenter.org.
