National History Day in Ohio
The 2014 District 9 contest will take place on Saturday, March 22 at Ohio University-Chillicothe campus. More information coming soon!
National History Day in Ohio is a year-long program where students choose a topic which is tied to an annual theme. Students then create historical papers, dramatic performances, creative documentaries, museum-like exhibits and websites. Their projects are based in primary and secondary source research and reflect their analysis of the historical topic.
District 9 Ohio History Day
Hosted by Hopewell Culture National Historical Park in partnership with the Ohio Historical Society and sponsored by the Ross-Chillicothe Convention & Visitors Bureau, the event typically takes place at Ohio University's Chillicothe campus. Students in grades 6th-12th compete at two different levels: 6-8 in the Junior competition and 9-12 in the Senior competition.
Counties in District 9 include: Athens, Gallia, Hocking, Jackson, Lawrence, Meigs, Pike, Ross, Scioto, and Vinton counties.
History Day is an exciting co-curricular program that makes history come alive for students as they explore a historical topic related to an annual theme. Students learn history by doing history as their research leads them to imaginative exhibits, documentaries, original performances, websites, and papers.
