What should I bring to NCHD?

If you are a student entering a project in National Capital History Day, you’re probably starting to prepare a checklist of things you need to bring. A great place to start is our handy one-page document that lists all the requirements for each category (you can download a copy here).

And here’s a little checklist for each category:

ESSAY
-Bring a copy of your essay, so that you can reference it when you discuss with the judges.
-Bring a pen/notebook to take notes.

EXHIBIT
-Bring your exhibit! (You can set this up between 7:30 a.m. and 8:25 a.m. at Carleton University’s River Building or, if you’d like to get the setup done the night before, you can bring your project to the River Building on April 26 between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. Please let your teacher know that you plan to do this. Please note that students in this category are the only ones permitted to set up the day before National Capital History Day.)
-Bring 3 copies (plus one for  you) of your written materials (title page, annotated bibliography and process paper) for the judges.
-Bring a pen/notebook to take notes.

DOCUMENTARY

PERFORMANCE
-Bring 3 copies (plus one for you) of written materials (title page, annotated bibliography and process paper).
