Alabama History Day is an interdisciplinary academic program focused on historical research, interpretation and creative expression for 6th- to 12th-grade students. By participating in AHD, students become writers, filmmakers, web designers, playwrights and artists as they create unique contemporary expressions of history. The experience culminates in a series of contests at the local level which progress to our state competition. Winning competitors are eligible to move on to the National History Day competition held in Washington D.C., each June!

Seeking History Lovers!
Students from all over The Great State Of Alabama in grades 6 through 12 will have their projects judged online on
May 1, 2020
for this year's virtual version of the
Alabama History Day Competition!
We are looking for Alabamians interested in celebrating these year-long projects. After months of diligent research and creative energy, winning students from the local level will meet at our state-wide event. You can help them further hone their skills by evaluating entries, interviewing contestants, and selecting winners to represent our state 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!
