Three New Cash Prizes for History Day!

September 20, 2011

I am excited to announce that we have three brand-new awards secured for the 2012 National History DayinIndiana State Contest, and I have a feeling our students are going to be excited about these too! Here are the awards:

Thomas Krasean Prize for Indiana History will be awarded to the creator(s) of an outstanding project in Indiana history. This awardis provided by John Herbst, president and CEO of the Indiana Historical Society. The winner(s) of thisawardwill receive a cash prize of $500.

John S. and Louise Reif Herbst Prize for an outstanding project in German-American history. This award is provided by John Herbst, president and CEO of the Indiana Historical Society. The winner(s) of this award willreceive a cash prize of $200.

Rooker Family Foundation Award will be awarded to a student or students who have participated in National History Day in Indiana for multiple years. There will be a nomination process for this award prior to the state contest and it may or may not be divided into multiple awards. This award is sponsored by The Richard W. and Irene Rooker Family Foundation. The cash prize for this award is $500.

As you can see, the bar has been raised for prizes at the NHDI State Contest! We think that the competition for these prizes will rise as well. With the themeRevolution, Reaction, Reform in History, what topic will you choose this year?
