Are you looking for a free-choice project where your students can lead their own learning? Are you looking for a project that will allow your students to explore their creativity? Are you looking for a project that your students in grades 4-12 can all participate in?

Join us at the Allen County Public Library Genealogy Center for an introductory discussion on National History Day. The Indiana Historical Society will provide a FREE interactive talk on how National History Day can help your students develop life-long skills. The Allen County Public Library Genealogy Center will provide information on how to use their resources to aid in your project creation. Students in grades 4-12 are welcome to join the discussion.

Classroom Workshops

Scheduled by contacting the NHDI office, a History Day staffer will visit your classroom to introduce the program for you and your students, discuss research or project ideas or work in small groups with your students. Classroom programs are tailored to fit the needs of your classroom and address your particular questions and ideas. To schedule a classroom visit, contact the NHDI office.


NHDI staffers visit local public libraries during or after school to assist students with research and project needs. Students attending NHDI Tune-ups can sign up to receive individual consultations, attend mini lessons on various NHD topics and get personalized research assistance from librarians. Tune-ups should be scheduled by a teacher through the NHDI office.

To sign up for or request more information for any of these workshops, email nhdi@indianahistory.org or call (317) 233-9559.
