National History Day!

It’s National History Day, and today the Senior Division entries are being judged. Yesterday was Junior Division day and the project quality was amazing. We are posting our photos on our Facebook Page and Flickr Photostream as quickly as we can, so you can watch the progress.

Today I wanted to share with you a wonderful commendation that National History Day received from Arne Duncan, U.S. Secretary of Education. On Wednesday, June 15 he said:

“My congratulations to National History Day, a project in its 30th year of making history come alive for students and teachers. The thousands of students, parents and teachers who will convene at the University of Maryland are a strong indication that the study of history continues to attract bright young minds from every corner of our nation. This year’s theme – the individual in history – is especially noteworthy because it has enabled students to examine the unique men and women who contributed so much to the shaping of American and world history. To all the students, teachers and parents, and to the staff members of National History Day who conduct this extraordinary competition each year, I extend my best wishes for another successful National History Day.”

Thank you very much, Secretary Duncan! We appreciate your kind words and support!
