CT History Day
Take this opportunity to meet some of the sixty-one middle and high school students who represented Connecticut in the prestigious National History Day competition this month. This hard-working cohort joined close to 3,000 other students from across the United States who advanced through the gauntlet of regional and state contests to reach the national stage.
Tasked with generating original research relating to the 2022 theme, “Debate and Diplomacy: Successes, Failures and Consequences,” the students submitted their work in one of five formats: documentary film, website, exhibit, paper or performance.
Hear fascinating first-person stories from these award-winning students about their challenging projects and the impact Connecticut History Day has had on them, along with commentary from featured speaker John Smith-Horn, Connecticut’s nominee for the Patriciate Behring Teacher of the Year and current instructor at Timothy Edwards Middle School in South Windsor.
This online event is sponsored by Connecticut’s Old State House, home of the Connecticut History Day program.
