National History Day 2008: Conflict and Compromise

Historians in the News

This year’s National History Day centered on the theme “Conflict and Compromise in History.” Events took place Sunday, June 15 through Thursday, June 19, 2008, at the University of Maryland, with students presenting papers, exhibits, performances, documentaries, and even web sites (a new category this year). The winners of this year’s National History Day were presented their awards on Thursday morning of last week, and the ceremony was broadcast live through a webcast on the History Channel’s web site. Congratulations to all of the winners, but also the more than 500,000 students across the country who participated this year. Below we’ve listed the winners in each category, but visit the 2008 National History Day contest winners page for a more complete list (including all medallists, outstanding entry winners, special award recipients, and more).
