National History Day in Kentucky is the ultimate project-based learning experience!
National History Day in Kentucky (NHDKY) is an annual learning competition for students in grades 4-12. Driven by curiosity, imagination, and innovation, NHDKY empowers students to express themselves through a historical topic they are passionate about. This hands-on experience focuses on the autonomy and creativity of each student as they research a topic of their choice, interpret its relevancy to our lives today, and display what they learned through a variety of platforms. The judging portion of the competition gives students the opportunity to serve as advocates of their work, which offers real-world experience in building confidence and conviction. Each year, KHS creates a coalition of judges across the state to be ambassadors of history in this rewarding student experience that benefits all, inside and outside the classroom.
