The College of Liberal Studies and the and History Department are proud sponsors of National History Day (NHD), a program that engages middle school and high school students in historical research and academic competition. Research begins in late fall, and culminates in school, regional, and state-level contests beginning in the spring. NHD provides University of Wisconsin-La Crosse students the opportunity to engage with young scholars at a number of stages in the research and competition phases. At UWL all history and history education majors and minors are encouraged to participate in National History Day.
