"Team Minnesota" Heads to National History Day in June

Sixty-four students from across the state qualified for the national competition

ST. PAUL, Minn. (May 28, 2024) – “Team Minnesota” is set! Out of nearly 2000 Minnesota students who entered regional competitions, 64 were named winners at State History Day and are eligible to represent Minnesota at National History Day in Washington, DC June 9-13.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of National History Day, and the 2024 theme is “Turning Points in History.” Winning topics are wide-ranging, from segregation to the feminist movement to the impact of Sesame Street.

Students in grades 6-12 spent weeks and months researching their history topics, analyzing and synthesizing information, writing, and presenting their historical projects. They created and presented exhibits, documentaries, websites, and performances.

If you would like to connect with a student from your area with this honor, or if you are interested in the results from National History Day, please contact Allison Ortiz.
