Happy new year!

This year marks an exciting year for National Capital History Day as we get ready for our second contest on May 1, 2015 (mark your calendar!).

We’re especially thrilled to be moving to a new home at Carleton University, where students will be able to show off their research in the River Building (home of the Carleton School of Journalism and Communication, which has produced some of the country’s top journalists).

Not only will we have more space for participants, but we’ll also be able to take advantage of the university’s state-of-the-art facilities for screening our documentaries, not to mention computer labs for website entries and improved space for student performances and our Hall of History, too. (Did we mention that student exhibits will be housed in a room with stunning views of the Rideau River?) If you’re unfamiliar with the campus, you’ll find an interactive map here.

Another bonus of the River Building: state-of-the-art media facilities. The building is home to Carleton's nationally recognized School of Journalism and Communication.

Watch this site in the days ahead for some important updates, including how you can register a project (we’ll post that link very soon) and an FAQ for students and teachers that will give you a quick overview of some common questions about NCHD. Until then, don’t forget to check out some important info already posted on this site. You can download a rulebook here, get info about this year’s theme here (and all projects must reflect this theme), and find out more about National Capital History Day’s categories here.
