The 2023 National History Day contest will be held in the Natchitoches region at the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame and Northwest Louisiana History Museum on March 11, 2023 and the theme is “Frontiers in History: People, Places, and Ideas.” LaToya Williams, the WWII National History Day Coordinator, is holding several History Day sessions via Zoom with dates from Sept. 8 to Nov. 2. I have attached the flyer with the dates and QR code to register for one of the meetings.
