National History Day- Butte County 

Butte County students win National History Day competition at the county level and are headed for the state competition in Sacramento.  Students from 4th through 12th grade came from all over the county to enter their National History Day projects at the first annual National History Day- Butte County (NHD-BC) event. This year the event was held at Durham High School and out of the many students, 15 students were chosen to go on to state competition.  The winners come from Paradise, Oroville and Chico. 

Below is the list of student winners and the title of their projects. 

More about National History Day:

Much like a spelling bee, the National History Day competitions start at the county level. The winners of each county go on to compete at the state level, and the winners at the state level go on to compete at the National Contest which is held annually in June at the University of Maryland.

The National Contest for National History Day is a week-long event that includes groups from all 50 states, Washington D.C., Guam, American Samoa, Puerto Rico and international schools in China, Korea, South Asia and Central America.

Project Categories for National History Day are:

  • Documentary (individual or group)
  • Exhibit (individual or group)
  • Paper (individual only)
  • Performance (individual or group)
  • Website (individual or group)
  • Poster (4th and 5th grade students only, individual or group 

Every year there is a new theme for National History Day that should be evident in the student projects. This year’s theme is “Taking A Stand In History”. From the NHD website: The theme is broad to encourage students to delve into history, whether it be a topic from the ancient world or the history of their own city. For more information on National History Day, visit the NHD website at: www.nhd.org.
