Michigan History Day

Congratulations to all District 10 contest participants!!

Michigan History Day, an affiliate of National History Day sponsored by the Historical Society of Michigan, is a year-long educational program where students in grades 4-12 pick a historic topic related to an annual theme, conduct original research using primary and secondary sources, analyze their findings and draw conclusions about their topics significance in history and create final projects to showcase their work.  The projects, which include papers, documentaries, performances, exhibits and web sites, can be entered in a series of competitions from the local to the national level.

We are proud to support the Michigan History Day program at the local level. During the school year, we provide teachers and students with information and resources on the program. Each March, the Detroit Historical Museum hosts the local competition for students throughout southeastern Michigan.



All judges evaluation forms will be mailed to the sponsoring teacher at the school address on Monday, March 5th, 2018. Please be aware that it may take up to 7-10 days for the evaluation forms to arrive.
