The Maryland History Day Competition, coordinated in our state by the Maryland Humanities Council, is much more than one day - each student spends on average more than 70 hours envisioning, researching, and fine-tuning a project, which is based upon an annual theme.

About 19,000 public, private, parochial, and homeschool students enter from all corners of our state.  Christine Pritt, the 2013 Patricia Behring Middle School History Day Teacher of the Year in Maryland, provides a reflection of another benefit of student participation: building community.
