Our Need


Student entry fees and a small stipend from each county currently accounts for 98% of our budget. Student fees are high for a competition of this nature and a burden for families. Unlike science fairs which have large corporate sponsors in the science and technology industries, NHD-CA currently has only a few outside funding sources. Sponsors are needed to stabilize the financial position of NHD–CA and allow us to reach our goals of expanding history day to more counties, schools, and students throughout our state.


Preparing students for the 21st Century

We invite you to partner with us as we provide an experience for students to learn skills that will last them a lifetime. As our sponsor, we will highlight your company throughout the state and in social networks associated with NHD-CA and indirectly throughout the USA. We are looking for a presenting sponsor who can help fund all or a large portion of our goals. We are also looking for sponsors who can fund smaller needs.


We are looking for partners to help with the following Goals   

     Provide funding to:



  • reduce NHD-CA student participation fees.


  • cover staff time which would allow NHD-CA staff to devote more time towards expanding the program throughout the state.


  • cover NHD-CA competition expences.


  • produce curriculum and workshops for students and teachers.


  • cover registrations costs for California Champions advancing to the NHD competition in Maryland.


  • T-shirts for all NHD-CA participants and champions advancing to NHD.


  • allow NHD-CA to pursue holding the competiton at a conference venue.
