We've been proud to host National History Day Philadelphia for several years now, and we are especially proud of the Philadelphia students' fabulous performance at the recent National History Day in PA.

This program has helped inspire countless students to participate in the process of history, teaching invaluable research and social skills.

These students will go on to compete in the national competition in June. Congrats and good luck to all the participants!
