Oklahoma National History Day contest
One event on May 4, 2023 at 12 a.m.
Oklahoma National History Day is more than an academic exercise for thousands of Oklahoma junior high and high school students; it is a tradition. On Wednesday, May 3, and Thursday, May 4, more than 200 6th- through 12th-grade students will present their exhibits, documentaries, performances, websites, and papers at the Oklahoma History Center in Oklahoma City for the opportunity to advance to the National History Day® contest held each summer in the nation’s capitol.
Due to the size of the event, there will be gallery closures on these days. Please call ahead to 405-522-0765 to ensure that exhibits are open for visitors.
Oklahoma National History Day is part of National History Day®, a highly regarded academic program for 6th- through 12th-grade students with more than 700,000 students taking part annually. Students from across the state choose historical topics related to an annual theme and conduct extensive research at libraries, archives, museums and historic sites. Student scholars use their research to draw conclusions about their topics’ significance in history and present their work at regional and state contests in hopes of qualifying for the National History Day® Contest each June.
First- and second-place winners at the state competition will advance to the National History Day® 2022 National Contest. This year, the national competition will be held in-person at the University of Maryland at College Park from Sunday, June 11 to Thursday, June 15.
