Welcome to Oregon History Day!

Each fall, Oregon Historical Society kicks off the Oregon History Day program alongside half a million students in grades 6-12 across the country. Education Manager Kristen Pilgrim works closely with educators throughout the state, and students use the OHS Research Library and digital assets like the Oregon History Project and Oregon Encyclopedia to conduct research on the annual theme. 

The 2020 National History Day® theme is Breaking Barriers in History. Students create their  project in one of five categories:  paper, website, exhibit, performance, or documentary. Students can work individually or as a group.

For specific registration directions, please select the 'Student' or 'Teacher' tabs above as they apply to you.

Direct any questions to: Kristen Pilgrim (History.Day@OHS.org) or 503-306-5262.
