Welcome Students! We are happy that you have decided to participate in N.C. History Day this year. North Carolina History Day is a program designed to promote interest in history among students and to assist teachers in teaching history more effectively.  The program will help students develop skills in historical research, analysis, critical thinking, organization, and presentation, as well as improve reading and writing skills. Before you get started there are several things we'd like you to keep in mind:

  1. Registration Deadline is March 15th, 2019 at 11:59 p.m. Late registrations will not be accepted, so be sure you do not wait until the last minute to register.
  2. Your teacher must register before you can register.
  3.  If you are registering as a group, one student in the group must register first with the project. Afterwards, other group members can register and connect themselves to the same project using the team key that is provided to the first student at the very end of the registration process. If any of your group members accidently register without linking to the group project with the team key, please contact your teacher so that they can connect it for you in the system.
  4. Be sure to look over all provided contest materials (NHD Rule Book, Contest Packets from the Regional Coordinator, and the information from your teacher) to make sure you complete your project correctly and bring everything required to the contest.
  5. If you are in the Website Category, please make sure you save and publish your NHD Weebly website by 11:59pm on March 22nd.  Once Weebly closes, your website will be locked from editing until after the contest.
  6. If you are in the Paper Category, please make sure you upload a PDF of your paper to your registration portal by 11:59 on March 22nd. You are also required to mail 3 hard copies of your paper to the address below.
  7. Each student participating in the state contest must pay a $10 registration fee.  This is per student not per project. Payment can be made by check or cash. If paying by check, please make them payable to WNCHA – History Day.” 
  8. Mail all checks and required paperwork for your category to:
