A High Quality Research Program
Louisiana History Day is an annual competition that encourages students to explore local, state, national, or world history by investigating and presenting on a topic of their choice. Students can choose to write a research paper, develop a website, film a documentary, create an exhibit, or produce a live-action performance.
The National WWII Museum is the History Day affiliate for Louisiana. Regional competitions are held each year in Baton Rouge, Lafayette, Monroe, New Orleans, and Shreveport. The state competition is held at the Museum in New Orleans, and the national competition is held on the campus of the University of Maryland near Washington, DC. Nearly 6,000 students compete at the national level each year—an experience they'll never forget.
