HS National History Day


Eliza Hardin

9th-12th graders
Instructor: Caroline Hernasy and Eliza Hardin

Fall semester with competition in February and April.  This is an amazing opportunity for your students to compete against fellow high schoolers from all over the state of North Carolina.  They can choose from an individual or group option, as well as performance, documentary, website, exhibit, or paper.  This competition fits all kinds of students and learning styles.   The next school year's theme for the competition is Debate and Diplomacy in History.  Students will use the class time in the fall to prepare for the competition to be held in February, so they will still be able to participate in Shakespeare in spring as well if they want.   If you have questions please contact Eliza at   Also, consider viewing the sample videos on our Student Showcase page and check out the national website at
