National History Day makes history come alive for students by engaging them in the discovery of the historical, cultural and social experiences of the past. Through hands-on experiences and presentations, today’s kids are better able to inform the present and shape the future. This year’s NHD theme is Leadership and Legacy in History. 7th and 8th graders explored leaders throughout history and the legacies they left for us today. They shared their research and conclusions by building websites, producing documentary films and creating informative exhibits.
