WHEN IS HISTORY DAY?
The 2023 Butte County History Day Competition will take place on Saturday,
March 4, 2023 at Nelson Avenue Middle School.
National History Day (NHD) is a premier competition that engages more than half a million students nationally. As part of NHD, Butte County History Day allows students to participate in authentic, challenging, project-based learning that lasts an entire school year. Students select topics and research them as historians would – by using libraries, archives, museums, and oral history interviews. Their analysis and interpretations come together with the facts and evidence they've gathered to become their final projects.
If your school or student would like to participate in Butte County National History Day, contact Mary Ellen Garrahy for more information

Students may participate in one of three divisions which are based on their grade level. The divisions are:
Elementary grades 4-5
