Cooperative Agreement for National History Day Partnership Renewal (Continuing the work of AH-50001-13)

A cooperative agreement with National History Day to continue support for the Kenneth E. Behring National History Day Contest and related activities.

NHD is a non-profit education organization based in College Park, MD. Established in 1974, NHD offers year-long academic programs that engage over half a million middle- and high-school students around the world annually in conducting original research on historical topics of interest. These research-based projects are entered into contests at the local and affiliate levels, where the top student projects have the opportunity to advance to the National Contest at the University of Maryland at College Park. NHD also seeks to improve the quality of history education by providing professional development opportunities and curriculum materials for educators. National History Day (NHD) is pleased to present a proposal for the renewal of its partnership with the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). Through the support of NEH, scores of students now hold the designation of "NEH Scholar" in addition to their gleaming 1st Place medal and monetary award.
