All students receive a Certificate of Achievement for entering a project in National Capital History Day.

The Fulbright Canada-U.S. Embassy in Ottawa Leadership Program provides small grants to current Fulbright grantees and alumni of the Fulbright Canada program to partner with local organizations to make a significant positive social impact on their community. Fulbright historians Ruby Heap and Ruth Dunley were honoured with an award, and together with veteran Ottawa teachers, Kathy Sigmund-Scheepers, Ruth Bouttell and Kristin Riddell, along with historian Erin Gurski and our registrar, Alison Peters, organized the first-ever National Capital History Day in 2014. The competition is modelled after the highly successful National History Day program in the United States, which has supported the adaptation of their materials for the Canadian classroom. National Capital History Day is also supported and endorsed by the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board and the Ottawa Catholic School Board.
