National History Day

National History Day®(NHD) is a non-profit education organization based in College Park, Maryland. NHD offers year-long academic programs that engage over half a million middle- and high-school students around the world annually in conducting original research on historical topics of interest. Since 1974, NHD has continuously improved history education by providing professional development opportunities and curriculum materials for educators.

RRCHNM undertook a redesign of the NHD site, with an emphasis on user experience and awareness. Sections were re-arranged to guide users through Teacher, Student, and Donor pathways to simplify the browsing experience. Pages highlight students and teachers in action through banner and slider images. And a 2011 report on NHD was brought to life through the Why NHD Works page, including video testimonials from teachers, students, and alumni.
