The National WWII Museum, 945 Magazine Street, New Orleans, LA
The National WWII Museum will host the largest Louisiana History Day Competition to date. The State Contest will take place at the Museum on April 20, 2013. The theme for the 2013 Contest is "Turning Points in History." The prestigious academic research program and competition is for students in grades 6-12 and is part of a nation-wide hunt for the best budding historians.
Students are placed in two divisions - Middle School and High School - and tasked with creating a paper, exhibit, documentary, web site or performance that explores an important historical episode or topic. The exhibits will be judged and the best will be entered in the National History Day competition to be held this June at the University of Maryland in College Park, Maryland.
