Surround yourself with tradition. Surround yourself with UW-La Crosse.
The College of Liberal Studies and the and History Department are proud sponsors of National History Day (NHD), a program that engages middle school and high school students in historical research and academic competition. Research begins in late fall, and culminates in school, regional, and state-level contests beginning in the spring. NHD provides University of Wisconsin-La Crosse students the opportunity to engage with young scholars at a number of stages in the research and competition phases. At UWL all history and history education majors and minors are encouraged to participate in National History Day.
The National History Day program at UWL is overseen by Assistant Professor Patricia Stovey. She can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or 608.785.8353.
Thanks to all who helped out with
this year’s National History Day Contest.
The theme “Exploration, Encounter, Exchange in History,” covered a wide
range of subjects for historical discussion and debate.
