We need your help to ensure that the New York State History Day program remains strong in the years ahead!
Funding provided in the New York State Education Department budget has enabled us to expand the program over the past three years. Statewide participation has nearly tripled. Our program staff has provided National History Day curriculum materials to participating schools free of cost, increased our in-person teacher and student trainings, and developed comprehensive lesson plans and curricula.
With the current economic crisis and pending state budget cuts, the New York State Historical Association is working hard to continue the annual $180,000 in state support for the New York State History Day program. Please help us by contacting your state senator and assembly member and asking them to support New York State History Day.
Here’s how you can help:
