Seventy students from across the district are gearing up to participate in the National History Day Regional Competition in Fairfield on April 6. National History Day is a program for students in grades 6-12 that encourages exploration of local, state, national and world history. This is the first time that Norwalk Public Schools is participating in this competition.


Students conducted extensive research on a historical topic and then created a final project to demonstrate their work. Professional historians and educators at the upcoming National History Day event will evaluate these projects.

The largest NHD program is the National History Day Contest that encourages more than half a million students around the world to conduct historical research on a topic of their choice. Students enter these projects at the local and affiliate levels, with top students advancing to the National Contest at the University of Maryland at College Park.


In line with the Strategic Operating Plan, NPS continues to expand engagement in academic competitions and programs such as National History Day and National Read Across America Day. These opportunities are presented to all students through each child’s individual school. In addition, schools can also choose to participate in a variety of regional, state, and national competitions and events.
