National History Day Contest: Information on Judging and Participation

It is almost that time of year again, the Baton Rouge Regional History Day Competition is just around the corner! This year, however, it's going to look very different. Due to Covid-19 pandemic, the 2021 competition is going to be completely virtual. Each category, including exhibits, will be compatible with History Day website. We also have an instructional guide on uploading projects available. Students in grades 6-12 will complete projects in 1 of 5 categories- paper, website, exhibit, performance, or documentary. They will be completing for special awards and the opportunity to represent Louisiana at the National Contest in Washington, D.C. Students from 12 parishes will be eligible for the regional competiton in Port Allen.

The 2021 NHD theme is Communication in History: The Key to Understanding. Registration for students and judges is already open! Students must have their projects uploaded to the site by Friday, March 5, and the winners will be annouced Saturday, March 13. This will give judges a full week to review and rank projects for each category.
