About National History Day
National History Day (NHD) is a highly regarded academic program for elementary and secondary school students. Each year, more than half a million students, encouraged by thousands of teachers nationwide participate in the NHD contest. Students choose historical topics related to a theme and conduct extensive primary and secondary research through libraries, archives, museums, oral history interviews, and historic sites. After analyzing and interpreting their sources and drawing conclusions about their topics’ significance in history, students present their work in original papers, websites, exhibits, performances, and documentaries.

2014-15 school year’s History Day theme was “Leadership and Legacy in History.” The entries were judged with three criteria: historical quality, quality of presentation, and adherence to the theme.
Andrew Stephens from Garretson Elementary School in the Corona-Norco USD won at the state level: Conference of California Historical Societies Award.
