Background: The Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) along with county history day coordinators from throughout the state hosts National History Day - California. The statewide event is associated with National History Day, a year-long educational program that encourages elementary, middle and high school students to explore local, state, national, and world history.
In addition to teaching the relevance and importance of history for all grade levels and ages, the program helps students develop problem-solving, oral and written communication, research, analysis, critical thinking and presentation skills that are directly tied to the Common Core State Standards. Students also gain self-esteem, confidence, and a sense of responsibility for and involvement in the democratic process. Over 40,000 students participate in history day statewide.
At each competition level, student projects are evaluated by a team of community members, as well as volunteers from the history and education fields. Competition divisions include Elementary (grades 4-5), Junior (grades 6-8), and Senior (grades 9-12). Qualifiers move on to the National History Day(c) Contest taking place June 10 - 14 at the University of Maryland, College Park.
