National History Day is a competition where you create a display, website, documentary, play, or research paper on a topic that relates to the theme. The winner at Nationals receives $5,000! (Plus some other stuff).

I entered history day with a partner. We created a website on the Antarctic Treaty. We didn't advance, or get an honorable mention, but we missed a day of school and got to hang out at JMU. I'm definitely entering next year, maybe without a partner. We'll find out next Autumn/Spring.
