Students may choose any history topic of their choice. For their NHD project, students can compete in one of the following categories: an exhibit project; a historical performance (10 minutes in length); a 10-minute documentary; or a website project. Students will initially present their projects at our St. Brendan’s Contest in February with winners presented gold, silver and bronze medals, based on judge voting. Next, there are three levels of official NHD competitions: the Regional NHD Contest at University Circle in March; winners advance to the State-level Ohio History Day at Capital University in Columbus in April; then the top 2 winners in each category in Ohio will advance to the NHD National Contest in June at the University of Maryland.
