Torrington, CT–CT History Day (Torrington Regional Contest) @ Torrington High School
Mar 14 all-day

Connecticut History Day is a program for students in grades 6-12 that encourages exploration of local, state, national, and world history. Connecticut History Day is one of 58 affiliate programs of the highly regarded National History Day program.

After selecting a historical topic that relates to an annual theme, students conduct extensive research using libraries, archives, museums, and oral history interviews. Students analyze and interpret their findings, draw conclusions about their topic’s significance in history, and create final projects that demonstrate their work.

Student History Day projects are judged by teams of volunteer judges. All judging at History Day is done on a consensus basis and judges’ decisions are final. Judges are recruited from the local community; they are educators, historians, curators, video producers, writers, lawyers, and business people with a love of history and education.
