A series of contests at the local level leads to our state competition. Winning competitors are eligible to progress to the National History Day competition!

Seeking History Lovers!

Students in grades 6 - 12 from all over the great state of Alabama will have their projects judged 

April 8, 2022

during the next 

Alabama History Day Competition!


We are looking for Alabamians interested in celebrating students' year-long projects. After months of research and creativity, winning students from local levels meet at our state-wide event. You can help by evaluating their entries, interviewing contestants, and selecting winners to represent Alabama in the national competition.

While most judges work in the humanities (e.g., educators, librarians, museum professionals and artists) all volunteers interested in witnessing the impressive documentaries, exhibits, performances, research papers, and websites created by Alabama youth are encouraged to judge!

For further information, please contact Rachel Hartsell at Alabama Humanities Alliance (205.558.3996 / rhartsell@alabamahumanities.org).
