“NHD was an amazing experience and is something I have carried with me for years. Giving back by teaching others and volunteering to judge has been equally rewarding. I would encourage all alumni, family members, and friends who supported us to get involved in their areas to help foster the next generation of historians.”
– Amma Ghartey-Tagoe Kootin, Kansas (1996)
“My employer has a policy where every year we’re allowed to take time off for a volunteer cause. For the past 2 years, I’ve used my volunteer time off to help our local History Day events and volunteer as a judge.”
– Jonathan Lautaha, Hawaiʻi (2004–2008)
“I came back from College Park that year completely pumped. I immediately contacted the Iowa NHD coordinator, told her my story, and volunteered to do whatever I could to help the Iowa program… Clueless 22-year-old Crystal had no idea that one could actually make a career out of doing NHD, but the stars aligned for me to be hired as the Iowa coordinator about 18 months later.”
