Hullabaloos: History Day Research Days


A History Day Hullabaloo is a research open house. Students can: 

  • Conduct primary and secondary research with the guidance of library staff.
  • Get one-on-one help from a History Day staff member or undergraduate mentor.
  • Attend a mini-lesson on a range of topics.
  • View sample projects.
  • Get pumped up about History Day!

These events are first come-first serve, so get there early if you want to ensure yourself a Power Conference slot with History Day staff or mentors!
