National History Day
What is the National History Day(NHD) Contest, you ask? Each year more than half a million students in grades 6-12 embark on an adventure called National History Day. Your project is based around the annual theme determined by the National organization. You will choose a historical topic related to the annual theme, and then conduct primary and secondary research. The theme for the 2014-15 school year is Leadership and Legacy.
Leadership is not limited to a lone individual. It can be a group like the Mercury Seven astronauts who were the inspiration for all other who followed in their path into space. The United Nations might fall under leadership depending on how you would use this group of an example of a lasting legacy. In this case perhaps the United Nations Security Council, Leaders to prevent future wars.
You will conduct research looking through libraries, archives and museums, conduct oral history interviews, and visit historic sites. You will use both primary and secondary sources that help shape your thesis statement into a working, living project. You need to have a 2 to 1 Primary to secondary source for your project when you compile your annotated bibliography. After you have analyzed and interpreted your sources, and have drawn a conclusion about the significance of your topic, you will then be able to present your work in one of five ways: as a paper, an exhibit, a performance, a documentary, or a web site. Of these five choice only the Historical paper has to be done as an individual. All the others can be done as a group of no more than 5 or individual. There are two level. Senior division which is grades 9-12 and Juniors which is grades 6-12.
Kingman, beginning in the fall of 2014, will open our Regional competition to 5th graders to show off their skills using reduced requirements. They will not be ale to move on to State competition, but we plan on having judging for their level to give them a feel for the competition. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on the 5th grade program.
Kingman Middle school will be hosting a city wide History Fair on Dec 6 2014, for all Kingman Middle Schools including KAOL Middle School . It is our hope that each year a different Middle School will host this event an make it a City wide event to bring all our schools and the community together to show just how great our academic programs and schools are. We will not have students be judged at the Fair. That portion goes along with a National History Day project, but your projects will have been graded by your teachers. Performances will be recorded so that they can be displayed along with the Documentaries and any Web Sites. This is a great chance to show our community, parents and fellow students what we have all done and accomplished and is a great chance to get feedback in the event you want to move on to Regional competition.
Regional Competitions take place in the spring, you may enter your work into a Regional NHD contest where it is judged by professional educators and historians. For the Mohave County area the Kingman Regional Competition is hosted at Lee Williams High School. If your work is chosen as one of the best, you will move on to your state’s NHD contest. At each level only the top two in each of the categories get to move on. As a winner at your state NHD contest, you will be eligible to attend the Kenneth E. Behring National History Day Contest at the University of Maryland at College Park in June. This is where the best National History Day projects from across the United States, American Samoa, Guam, International Schools and Department of Defense Schools in Europe all meet and compete.
