Across the country, high school students participate in National History Day by submitting their independent research in this national competition. The theme this year  is “Triumph & Tragedy in History”.  Students select their own topic, find the significance of their event in history and create a project in their chosen area: performance, documentary, research paper, exhibit or web site.   Read more about National History Day here or www.louisianahistoryday.org

There are three levels of competition: the regional, state and national. Every year, the Shreveport Regional portion of National History Day is held at the Louisiana State Exhibit Museum.

For 2019’s National History Day, area students will bring their projects to the museum on Saturday, March 2, 2019 to be judged.   The winners of the regional competition will compete on the state level in New Orleans on April 6, 2019.
