"The support for Michigan History Day was phenomenal this year," said
Michigan History Day state coordinator Amy Bradfield. "More than 1,200
students and spectators attended the competition and 150 people volunteered
as judges-that kind of turnout shows our youth that history is still very
relevant and important today."

Michigan History Day (National History Day in Michigan) offers a fascinating
opportunity to move beyond routine learning. Based on an annual theme,
students choose to explore and research a local, national or international
historical topic. This year's theme is Conflict & Compromise in History.
Students then present their work in one of five categories: performances,
exhibits, papers, websites and documentaries.

Lead sponsors of Michigan History Day 2018 are The Meijer Foundation,
Frederick S. Upton Foundation, Rollin M. Gerstacker Foundation, Amway and
Bay City Public Schools.

The Historical Society of Michigan is the state's oldest cultural
organization, founded in 1828 by territorial governor Lewis Cass and
explorer Henry Schoolcraft. A nongovernmental nonprofit, the Society focuses
on publications, conferences, education, awards and recognition programming,
and support for local history organizations to preserve and promote
Michigan's rich history.
