The State Historical Society of Missouri is taking proactive steps to address the concerns of the COVID-19 virus. In coordination with our campus partners and per guidance from the CDC, the National History Day in Missouri state contest will be held as a virtual contest this year. We will not be hosting an in-person contest on the University of Missouri campus in Columbia. We feel this is the best option due to the rapidly changing situation of this virus outbreak, the closures of many institutions, and the recommendation for social distancing.
Please continue to register for the state contest and consider signing up to be a virtual judge! Stay tuned for more information about the virtual contest. Thank you for your understanding and support of our students and teachers who work hard to prepare for the annual contest.
