National History Day in Colorado

The Competition Phase

Students who opt to participate in the competition aspect of History Day must first register for a regional contest. First through third place winners from the regional contests will advance to the state contest at the Auraria Campus in downtown Denver. The first and second place winners in each division and category will have the opportunity to compete against contestants from the United States and territories at the National Contest in College Park Maryland in June.
