BACK National History Day Students Fly to Washington D.C. for the National Competition

This year, the National Competition for National History Day (NHD) was held in Washington D.C. for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic began. Over 40 of our Arizona students qualified to attend the exciting event. Arizona students were able to meet other students from all 50 states, U.S. territories, and international schools across the globe. On their first night of the trip, Arizona students attended a fun dance party with all of the NHD participants. Throughout the trip, students showcased their projects during their competition, met with U.S. Senators on their day off, and had opportunities to explore the Smithsonian museums and monuments in Washington D.C. Four projects were awarded with an honorable mention at the award ceremony, two projects were showcased at the National Museum of African American History and Culture, one project was showcased at the National Museum of American History, and one project was showcased at the White House. This event was an incredible opportunity for students and will never be forgotten.
