SACRAMENTO, CA - In an effort to enhance historical education and expand opportunities for California's students, National History Day California (NHD-CA) has announced a new partnership with California State University Sacramento (Sac State).
This partnership will bring together two organizations with a shared mission to promote history education and cultivate the next generation of historians. NHD-CA is a non-profit organization administered by the Sacramento County Office of Education that provides K-12 students with opportunities to engage in historical research, while Sac State is a leading institution for higher education in California, with a strong commitment to promoting historical education.
The partnership with California State University Sacramento will enable National History Day California to expand its resources and reach more students across the state. The university will provide support and guidance to students participating in National History Day events and serve as the host for the annual state contest held each spring.
According to Dr. Jeffrey Wilson, Department Chair of the History Department at California State University Sacramento, the partnership is an exciting opportunity to strengthen historical education and research in California schools.
"We are thrilled to partner with National History Day California to advance the study of history across the state," said Wilson. "Through this partnership, we hope to inspire a new generation of historians and promote the value of historical research and education."
The partnership between NHD-CA and Sac State is a significant step towards advancing historical education and research in California. As more students are inspired to study history and engage in historical research, the state can look forward to a brighter future of informed and engaged citizens.
