• This year’s theme (2017-18) Conflict and Compromise in History  

    According to NHD organizers this year’s  intentional selection of the theme for NHD is to provide an opportunity for students to push past the antiquated view of history as mere facts and dates and drill down into historical content to develop perspective and understanding. (http://nhd.org/contest-affiliates/annual-theme/)

    This year all students in grades 7-11 and all students enrolled in 12th grade Advanced Placement/IB courses in the high school will participate in NHD.   Any student who wishes to complete a project who is not currently enrolled in these courses may do so through the History Club please contact the club advisor, Mrs. Robbins.  

    If you would like more information on National History Day please visit any of the following websites or feel free to contact your child’s teacher or me via email at gordond@hauppauge.k12.ny.us or by phone 631.761.8320.
