History Day LOGO Color-FINAL

Sacramento County History Day

As part of NHD-CA, Sacramento County History Day (SCHD) makes history come alive for students by engaging them in discovering the historical, cultural and social significance of the past.  NHD engages Students through authentic historical inquiry on a topic of their choice. Their research, analysis, and interpretations are brought together to become their final projects which are displayed at school showcases.

Student projects can be entered at the county level and winners at Sac History Day advance to the state History Day competition.
