Kentucky students in grades K-12.
How much are annual membership dues?
$10 per student.
What do students and teachers get for their dues?
There are many membership benefits, including a free T-shirt and discounts for attendance at the KJHS annual conference. Other benefits include free KHS education staff visits and workshops with groups in their locations and an updated teacher's handbook with new activities.
Is there a set number of times groups have to meet during the year?
You decide how frequently to meet. Your meeting schedule will depend on the types of projects you want to do and whether you embed the program into your curriculum.
Do we have to use Parliamentary procedure at our meetings?
Your meetings do not have to follow Parliamentary procedure, but you can use it if you want to do so.
Do we have to elect group officers?
Your governance system is entirely up to you.
Is National History Day the same as KJHS?
No, it is not the same. KJHS is a school club or group. NHDKy is a program that prepares students to participate in regional, state and national NHD competition. KHS is the NHD coordinator for Kentucky. NHDKy is one activity that KJHS groups can choose to do.
Who do I contact if I have questions about KJHS?
