Contests

Learners in grades 4-12 enter projects into the first level of NHDI competition at regional contests around the state. Finalists from each contest are invited to compete at the NHDI State Contest, where the top winners in the Junior and Senior divisions (grades 6-12) become eligible to compete at the National History Day Contest in College Park, Maryland, in June.

Teachers who judge for NHDI contests will be eligible for PGP credit from the Indiana Historical Society.

Contest Registration

All educators will need to fill out the project information spreadsheet per contest their learners will be attending. Download the spreadsheet, fill out the information, then click on the corresponding contest below you wish to register for. You will be prompted in the form to upload the completed spreadsheet.

Educators, please feel free to email Bethany Hrachovec at nhdi@indianahistory.org or call (317) 233-9559 with any questions.

IPS District contest participants must contact Andrea Hadsell prior to registration at ahadsell@indianahistory.org or call (317) 233-9028.

Contest Payments

The entry fee to participate in National History Day in Indiana contests is $10 per learner who was involved in the creation of a project and is competing in a regional contest. This is a one-time entry fee for all 2018 National History Day in Indiana contests. Learners who advance to the State contest will not have any additional fees to enter.

Educators will receive an invoice addressed to his or her school after registration closes for each regional contest. The preparation for the expected number of students begins the day registration closes. Because contest costs are based on the numbers we have when registration closes, schools will be invoiced based on the number of registered learners when registration closes.

Please contact the NHDI office at nhdi@indianahistory.org or (317) 233-9559 with any questions.

All times are Eastern Time.

Papers should be emailed in PDF format to nhdi@indianahistory.org or mailed to the following address by the above due dates:
