The Hawai‘i History Day State Fair, a competition which annually involves hundreds of students and teachers from around the state, was held on Saturday, April 15, at Windward Community College. This year marked the 27th anniversary of Hawai‘i History Day and this year’s theme was Taking a Stand in History.
State competitors were identified from a pool of contestants at eight district fairs held throughout the state in February and March. Students and teachers from the islands of Hawai‘i, Kaua‘i, Maui, Moloka‘i and O‘ahu participated in these recent district fairs. Top qualifiers from the state fair move on to the 2017 National History Day (NHD) contest, set for June 11-15 at the University of Maryland at College Park. Prizes are awarded at all levels, including over $150,000 in scholarships for local and national winners. Hawai‘i students have garnered many national awards and scholarships and are often recognized as top contenders in the national program.
