National History Day Mentoring Program - Students

Welcome to the NHD Mentoring Program. Our goal is to help you do the very best work you can on your National History Day project. You should know that you are part of a global program and this year almost 500,000 students just like you will be conducting research and presenting their findings. The contest is always very exciting but remember this: no matter what level you compete at know that you are to be commended for your hard work and diligence.
