Hawai‘i History Day, a program of the Hawai‘i Council for the Humanities, is a year-long history education program that invigorates the teaching and learning of history in grades 4-12. It promotes a theme-based, research-centered model for history and civics education. Students present their projects in an exhibit, performance, documentary, paper or website project. History Day culminates in the presentation and evaluation of these projects at school, district, state and national history days. Click here for the flyer.
