Each year more than half a million students from across the globe participate in National History Day. The contests are divided into Junior Division (grades 6-8) and Senior Division (grades 9-12), with five categories per division. These categories, assembled by presentation type, include individual or group documentaries, exhibits, performances and websites or individual historical papers (NHD Student Project Examples). 

Central Missouri Regional National History Day will be virtual in all categories this year. State and National History Day have also made the decision to hold virtual contests for 2022.
