National History Day in Indiana


National History Day in Indiana is a project-based, inquiry-based learning opportunity for learners in grades 4-12. National History Day in Indiana provides learners and educators the opportunity to explore history in new ways through the creation of documentaries, exhibits, websites, performances, and papers. Learners gain valuable skills in presenting through participation in regional, state, and national competitions. 

Studies on NHD show that:

  • NHD students outperform their non-NHD peers on state standardized tests, not only in social studies, but in reading, science and math as well.
  • NHD students are better writers, who write with a real voice, and marshal solid evidence to support their point of view.
  • NHD students are critical thinkers who can digest, analyze and synthesize information.
  • NHD students learn 21st century skills. They learn how to collaborate with team members, talk to experts, manage their time and persevere.
  • NHD has a positive impact on students whose interest in academic subjects may wane in high school.
