For the third year in a row, Sonoma County Library is partnering with National History Day Sonoma County to offer workshops and research days for participating Sonoma County students. Each year, students --participating through a school classroom or individually signed up--will choose a topic that relates to an annual theme, research that topic, and develop a presentation using one of five categories. Students may then enter their projects into History Day competitions at school, regional, state, and national levels.
The Library co-hosts a teacher informational meeting in September, and will offer workshops throughout the contest period ranging from topic choice and thesis development to search skills and resource evaluation. The emphasis on research and use of resources is a natural fit with the mission of the library, so we are very excited to participate. The program is open to students from all school settings in Sonoma County.
