Brooklyn Public Library’s Center for Brooklyn History is the host of NYC History Day! NYCHD 2024 is the regional contest for National History Day (NHD). New York City middle and high schoolers get to do original research on a historical topic of their choice and make their own exhibition, performance, documentary, website, or paper. Winners from NYCHD will have a chance to compete on the state and potentially national history day levels. All participants will be able to gain important research skills, connect with amazing New York City cultural institutions, and have fun!

Drop by the Center for Brooklyn History on September 19 to:

  • learn about this year's theme, Turning Points in History.
  • see examples of amazing award-winning projects and hear from the students who created them.
  • Talk to the NYCHD Coordinators and find out how they support teachers and students on their NYCHD journey.
  • eat, drink, and meet fellow history lovers in a beautiful landmarked building.

We hope to see you there! In the meantime, check out our NYCHD website to learn about the contest. You can always ask us questions by emailing [email protected].
