    Connecticut Humanities’ support for Connecticut History Day helps nurture the next generation of young historians and introduces them to the resources of the state’s museums, libraries and historical societies. History Day is a national program designed to engage middle and high school students in historic research and presentation. Coordinated in our state by Connecticut’s Old State House, the academic competition encourages students to explore local, state, national and world history. After selecting a historical topic that relates to an annual theme, students conduct extensive research using libraries, archives, museums and oral history interviews, and create final projects to present their work.
