Connecticut History Day
The Fairfield Museum supports teachers and students interested in Connecticut History Day, part of the National History Day program for students in grades 6-12.
The nationwide competition is an excellent way for students to independently study historical issues, ideas, people and events that they are passionate about. History Day is about the journey! Students who participate develop communication and critical thinking skills that will benefit them for a lifetime.
What is History Day? After selecting a historical topic that relates to the theme, students conduct extensive research and choose a category for their project (see below). Students present their research projects at district and state competitions. Winners of the state contests take part in the National Contest at the University of Maryland!
