National History Day Program

National History Day® encourages students to explore local, state, national, and world history. After selecting a historical topic that relates to an annual theme, students conduct extensive research by using libraries, archives, museums, and oral history interviews. They analyze and interpret their findings, draw conclusions about their topics' significance in history, and create final projects that present their work. These projects can be entered into a series of competitions, from the local to the national level, where they are evaluated by professional historians and educators.

Fort Ticonderoga coordinates North Country History Day, serving students in Clinton, Essex, Franklin, Hamilton, St. Lawrence, and Warren counties in New York State. The North Country History Day Regional Contest will be held on Saturday, March 3, 2018, in the Mars Education Center at Fort Ticonderoga. The theme for the 2017-18 school year is "Conflict and Compromise in History."
