Regional History Day

What is History Day?

History Day is a nationally acclaimed history education program that challenges middle school and high school students to become historians, explorers, investigators and leaders. History Day makes history come alive through active student learning and educator professional development.

Students may enter one of five categories of competition- papers, exhibits, performances, documentaries, and websites-in the junior (grades 6 through 8) and senior (grades 9 through 12) divisions. They can work as individuals or in groups in every category except paper.

Students may participate at their local school or may enter their regional contest. The 2017 Eastern Region contest will be held on February 25, 2017 at Eastern Washington University and is being sponsored by the College of Social Sciences and the Department of History (see registration and payment links below). Students may continue on to State History Day if they are in the top 3 of their category which is sponsored by the Washington State Historical Society (  If students win their divisions at State they may attend the Kenneth E. Behring National History Day Contest June 11-15. 2017 (
