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


Get tips on how your students can build professional-quality models and exhibits.

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.


Tour Algonquin College’s Applied Museum Studies labs and find out how students who love history can put their skills to work in the postsecondary world.
