Student Conduct: Students are expected to conduct themselves, both in-person and online, in a manner that brings credit to themselves, their schools, and the affiliates they represent. As guests at the University of Wyoming, you are expected to abide by the same rules the University has established for its students.

National History Day engages students in grades 6-12 in the process of discovery and interpretation of historical topics. Students produce dramatic performances, imaginative exhibits, multimedia documentaries, and research papers based on research related to an annual theme. These projects are then evaluated at local, state, and national competitions.
Many different people participate in the Wyoming History Day program, including Wyoming students and teachers, the University of Wyoming, Wyoming State Historical Society, the John P. Ellbogen Foundation, and community business like the Pedal House Bike Shop, which generously support the Wyoming History Day program with grants and special awards.

The NHD program is a year-long education program that culminates in a national contest every June. Wyoming History Day, administered by the American Heritage Center, occurs every year in April.

We've made the decision to transition to a virtual contest for 2022.  We want to give as many students the opportunity to compete even with everyone's busy schedule. Contest judging begins on March 26, 2022, and ends on April 1, 2022.
