National History Day AZ wrapped up

And that’s a wrap on NHDAZ 2021! Despite a challenging year, Arizona’s students had an impressive showing, as always! Students tackled this year’s theme, Communication in History: The Key to Understanding, with gusto, choosing diverse topics that covered World War II, racism and racial violence in the United States, women’s political and civil engagement, ancient languages, environmental issues, and so many more.
Students promoted to the NHD National Contest will compete virtually in June against thousands of other students from across the country and world! Thank you to our National History Day Arizona sponsors and supporters that help make this program possible: Albertsons, Arizona Humanities, The Foothills Club of Tucson, Historical League, Inc., Northern Arizona Pioneers Historical Society, SRP, and Smart & Final. An extra big thank you to the dozens of judges who spent hours reviewing every project and helping students grow and improve from regionals to state and onto nationals. NHDAZ would not work without you! Interested in learning more or participating in NHDAZ? Planning for the 2022 Contest is already underway!
