  One Response to “Our Mission”

  1. Dear Teachers and Librarians:

    As coordinator of National History Day in Central Nebraska, I would like to ask for your help. History Day, a national program for youth grades 6-12, offers students an opportunity to explore history, use their imagination and creativity, and gain experience presenting their work in public. It also offers them an opportunity to compete at district, state and national levels for awards and scholarships. Studies show that students who participate in History Day are more likely to perform better in college. And History Day meshes well with state and national assessment standards.

    We very much want to expand the number of Central Nebraska schools involved in the History Day program, and would like to make contact with interested teachers and students. Because History Day offers a variety of competition categories, projects may be mentored by Language Arts teachers, speech teachers, drama coaches, computer or web-design teachers, or librarians as well as history and social studies teachers. History Day also makes an excellent program for Home School students, for scout troops, 4-H, and for church youth groups or confirmation classes.

    We know that teachers are busy and can only do so much with their limited time. In many districts, retired teachers, moms and dads, and youth workers from the community volunteer their time to mentor History Day projects. We want to reach as many students in your school district as possible. We would love to have you take on History Day as a class project, but if you cannot commit to History Day this year, we would still love to hear from any interested students or parents who might like to participate.

    I am attaching a copy of our 2015 History Day brochure, which has my contact information. More information, including curriculum guides and the contest rule book, can be downloaded at the National History Day Nebraska website (nationalhistoryday.org). Would you please take a moment to look over the program and consider getting involved this year?

    If you cannot commit to History Day as a class project, could you make this information available to your students and encourage any who may be interested in participating to contact me at rohrerjr@unk.edu? Also, would it be possible for you to identify other teachers or potential mentors in your community and make them aware of this opportunity?

    Thank you very much for your time and assistance. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or feedback about National History Day in Central Nebraska.
