National History Day in Missouri empowers students like Josef Schuller to learn about their world through hands-on research projects on topics of their choosing. Students in grades 6 to 12 showcase their work through websites, documentaries, performances, papers, and exhibits at the local, state, and national level. NHD builds confidence, critical thinking, and a love for history.
This past summer, Josef traveled to Washington, D.C., for screenings of his documentary, The Bridge Over Fuchilin Pass: The Only Option for Retreat, at the Library of Congress and the American Film Institute. Schuller's documentary received the 2019 Next Generation Angels Award at the National History Day contest.
YOU can help students like Josef learn about our state's rich past through National History Day in Missouri each year. Please consider donating through CoMoGives, an annual fundraising campaign for non-profit organizations in Columbia and Mid-Missouri.
