2013 Sacramento County History Day Documentaries Play

On Saturday, March 9, 2013, over three hundred students from throughout the county participated in Sacramento County History Day at Inderkum High School. The winners in the six categories - 2-dimensional displays, exhibits, documentaries, performances, websites, and historical papers - will move on to the statewide competition this April in Sacramento.

National History Day is a year-long educational program that encourages students to explore local, state, national, and world history. After selecting a historical topic that relates to an annual theme, students conduct extensive research by using libraries, archives, museums, and oral history interviews. They analyze and interpret their findings, draw conclusions about their topics' significance in history, and create final projects that present their work. These projects can be entered into a series of competitions, from the local to the national level, where they are evaluated by professional historians and educators.
Sacramento County History Day is sponsored by the Center for Sacramento History, the Sacramento History Foundation, and the Sacramento County Office of Education.
