Northwest to Host National History Day

Over 130 students grades six through 12 will be on the Northwest Missouri State University campus Friday taking part in National History Day activities. The students come from 15 counties in northwest Missouri and will discuss this year's theme, "Rights and Responsibilities in History." The students will be asked to examine how these subjects have shaped the course of history. The contest will have students apply the skills of a historian as they conduct research for projects they hope will qualify them for National History Day competition this June in College Park, Maryland.
National History Day was founded in 1974 and has grown into a national academic program involving 2 million students.  Northwest is one of eight universities in Missouri hosting National History Day contests.
