National Contest

The National Contest for History Day is a week-long event that convenes each June at the University of Maryland, College Park, a campus situated 12 miles from the heart of Washington D. C.  Students representing Arkansas in the National Contest placed first or second in their division at the state contest after advancing through their school and regional contests.  Contestants from Arkansas join roughly 3,000 other young historians representing every state, Puerto Rico, Washington D. C., Guam, American Samoa, Korea, China, and schools in South Asia.

Students winning first, second, and third place in each category receive prizes of $1000, $500, and $250 respectively.  Additionally, NHD awards two dozen special prizes awarded to outstanding entries on specific historical topics ranging from African American and Irish history to the history of agriculture, physics, and baseball.
