Important Event Notes

  • Exhibit Word Count: The National History Day in Wisconsin program is part of a pilot project to test a potential update to the History Day rulebook. At the Wisconsin State Event, all exhibit entries must include the number of student-composed words in the exhibit as part of their title page. View the flyer (PDF) for more information.
  • Documentary Technology and Testing: Each room will be equipped with a media console that will accommodate VHS/DVD and laptop projection through a 15-pin VGA cable connection. Projects on DVD should be checked on a standard, non-computer based DVD player before arrival at the event to ensure that they will play. We strongly suggest that students bring an extra copy of their DVD and a copy of their project in another format as a backup for the event. Documentary rooms will open at 8:30 am. Students may test their equipment before judging begins at 9 am, or test it during the room's break. Be courteous! Testing your equipment should not interfere with the ability of the next scheduled student(s) to begin setting up their project.
