National History Day

Do you participate in National History Day?

History Day is a national competition that requires students to conduct high-level historical research and showcase their research in creative formats, such as exhibits, performances and documentaries.

College Park Aviation Museum invites you to help tell our story by creating your contest entry about an aviation-related topic. We will support students by providing assistance in our research library and archives, and we can review student projects prior to the competition.

To set up a research appointment or project review, please email the museum at
