Engaging project-based, student-centered learning.

Ohio History Day, an affiliate and prerequisite to the award winning National History Day program, asks students to be creative, collaborative, and think critically about history. By engaging students in research, this event provides an opportunity for students to practice cross-curricular learning and practical application, while developing public speaking skills. Students choose to write an essay, create a documentary, build and display an exhibit, write and perform a song or play, or create a website to be shared with an authentic audience of local historians and community partners.

Cincinnati Museum Center and the University of Cincinnati are proud to co-host Ohio History Day's Region 8 competition for Adams, Brown, Butler, Clermont, Clinton, Hamilton, Highland and Warren counties. It’s not just a day, it’s an experience!
