April 27: Learning History and Self-Reliance through Maryland History Day

Each year more than 27,000 middle and high school students throughout the state compete in the historical research contest known as National History Day. On April 29, more than 600 of those students will move on to the state contest, Maryland History Day, at UMBC. Tiffany Nickels, a Calvert County parent of one of those talented students, tells us more.

  • “It is difficult to properly express our gratitude to Maryland Humanities for the help and support that we received through the grant-making process and through the project…The support of (Maryland Humanities) was not in funding alone. By including a spot about the initiative in (their) Humanities Connection program on WYPR, Maryland Humanities did much to help promote our initiative and alert the general public about the program that we were running in the early months of the fall.”

    Dr. Kimberly Coles ~ Chair, Education and Citizenship Project Committee, University of Maryland College Park
