High School Students: National History Day Projects

Introduction

Ablah LibraryEveryone at the University Libraries is here to help you succeed and hopefully make your life a little easier. If there's anything you need, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us using the information in the "Getting Help" box on the "Research Basics" tab in this guide.

National History Day contest theme for 2019-2020 is Breaking Barriers in History. The state contest is at Washburn University (Topeka) in April, and the national contest is at the University of Maryland (College Park, Maryland) in June. For topic ideas go to the NHD Theme page to download the theme book and sample topics.

Kansas History Day has a webpage, too!

High school classes are welcome to come to campus and visits can be scheduled in cooperation with other departments to give students a complete campus experience. See the "Campus Experience" tab for more information.

Ablah Library has a classroom available when you schedule a time for library instruction. While in the library, students will learn how to use University Libraries resources, be able to use restricted resources while on campus, and print or e-mail articles at no charge. Students will benefit from exploring college-level resources.

Your students may checkout books as a class, if your school is in good standing with University Libraries. A form must be completed for group checkout permission. See the Library Facilities tab in this library guide for details about borrowing books as a community user.

Details can be discussed when you make the appointment. Contact Angela Paul or use this form to schedule time in Ablah Library for your class.
