Wyoming History Day

American Heritage Center

simpson


The National History Day program is a year-long education program that culminates in a national contest every June. Wyoming History Day, administered by the American Heritage Center, occurs every year in April.

National History Day engages students in grades 6-12 in the process of discovery and interpretation of historical topics. Students produce dramatic performances, imaginative exhibits, multimedia documentaries and research papers based on research related to an annual theme. These projects are then evaluated at local, state, and national competitions.
 
Many different people participate in the Wyoming History Day program, including Wyoming students and teachers, the University of Wyoming, Wyoming State Historical Society, the Wyoming Department of State Parks and Cultural Resources, The John P. Ellbogen Foundation, and community business like Taco John's, who generously support the Wyoming History Day program with grant awards.
