This is a great chance to see how students who love history can use their skills at the post-secondary level. In addition to finding out about this year’s contest, rule changes, the annual theme and picking up a copy of the NCHD17 rulebook, you’ll also have a chance to:
• Tour the Museum Studies labs
• Hear from a Museum Studies professor about how he teaches skills that can be used in museums, archives, public history displays and more
• Get tips on great resources that will help you make your history class come alive
• Pick up a tip sheet on some dos and don’ts for building museum-quality exhibits for National Capital History Day
You’ll also be able to hear from a former NCHD judge (find out what they’re looking for when they evaluate your students’ projects!), participate in a draw for fabulous history prizes and meet the people behind the scenes of National Capital History Day.
Interested in attending? Please RSVP by email to ottawahistoryday [at] gmail.com and let us know you’re planning to attend. We have an exciting year planned and we hope you’ll be able to take part.
