UMaine to Host National History Day Research Workshop, Weekly Reports

The Weekly reported the University of Maine will host a National History Day (NHD) research workshop March 3 for middle and high school students who are interested in history. Students, along with parents and-or teachers, will meet with UMaine history faculty, graduate students and library staff to help advance their research. Students can come with a fully developed idea or seek help starting a project for the national competition that encourages independent research. Students who participate in NHD choose historical topics and conduct research related to the annual theme. Students present their work in the form of original papers, websites, exhibits, performances or documentary videos. Projects are evaluated by judges in a statewide competition, and state winners move on to the national contest in Washington, D.C. UMaine will host the Maine National History Day on March 28.
