National History Day South Carolina LogoSouth Carolina History Day, the affiliate program for National History Day, engages elementary, middle, and secondary school students in historical research and analysis while developing important skills. Students chose how to present their research from different categories: paper, website, documentary, performance or exhibit. Students compete at various levels of competition across the state before advancing to the national contest. The Department of History in the Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts is proud to support education and this amazing program throughout the state.
