Connecticut History Day has gone virtual!
During this challenging time, The Connecticut Democracy Center at Connecticut’s Old State House is continuing its annual program for middle and high-school students by taking it online, and they need your help.
Connecticut History Day contests are the culmination of months of intense study and project development. Students choose topics related to the 2020 theme of Breaking Barriers in History, conduct research by interviewing experts, and shape their findings into sound historical arguments. Working alone or in groups, students use their research to create projects in one of five categories – exhibits, documentaries, websites, papers, or performances.
Virtual Judges are needed for the make-up regional contest on Saturday, April 18 and the State Contest on Saturday, May 2. This is a great opportunity to see students’ work up close and personal as a virtual judge. Volunteers will view student projects via an online platform and judge based on established criteria.
Connecticut History Day is one of 58 affiliate programs of National History Day and is presented with major funding and partnership support from CT Humanities.
