The National History Day competition is becoming a larger part of the WV State Social Studies Fair during the 2014-15 school year.  Take a look at the chart below to determine your eligibility to compete!  NOTE:  Middle school students may compete in Social Studies OR National History Day categories, BUT NOT BOTH.  For this year only, middle school National History Day students will not compete at school, county, or regional fairs - you will progress directly to the state-level competition.
