Montgomery County History Day

National History Day is a fantastic opportunity for students in middle and high school to learn about history while practicing their research and critical thinking skills. Students perform in-depth research on a historical topic, create a presentation in one of five formats (paper, exhibit, documentary, performance, or website), and receive feedback from judges that helps them learn and improve.


The National History Day theme for 2018 is Conflict and Compromise.

The Montgomery County History Day competition will be held on March 17, 2018 at Richard Montgomery High School. 

Teachers and Parents: If you are interested in having your student(s) participate in History Day, please complete this interest form to receive resources and tools for a successful History Day experience.


We need approximately 75 judges and 30 volunteers to make History Day happen.
