NELA National History Day

Jarrett Reeves with the Chennault Museum join us to talk about the NELA National History Day that takes place this weekend and how students can earn scholarships by participating.
Northeast Louisiana History Day set for March 22 at Chennault Museum

The northeast Louisiana preliminary to Louisiana History Day will be Saturday, March 22, 9 a.m.-2 p.m., at the Chennault Military and Aviation History Museum in Monroe. The preliminary is open to all northeast Louisiana students in grades six-12.

Students are invited to develop historical research and presentations based on the general theme of “Rights and Responsibilities in History.” They may choose the specific topic within the theme. Topics may be chosen from ideas on the history day website or may be one of the student’s choice.

Students may present their work through research paper, documentary video, live dramatic performance, graphic exhibit or website. They may work in small groups or as individuals, and judging is in two categories according to grade levels: sixth, seventh and eighth and ninth, 10th, 11th and 12th.

The benefits to students include practicing research and presentation methods and interacting with other students with similar educational interests and goals. Their projects may be selected for state competition at the National World War II Museum in New Orleans in April and at National History Day in Washington, D.C., in June. Stipends are given through National History Day to help cover travel expenses should students’ work be selected to go to New Orleans or Washington.

For more information, please see the website historyday@nationalww2museum.org or call 504-528-1944, ext. 350.

CAMM is operated through the Friends of Chennault Museum and the Louisiana Secretary of State.
