Dames Support History Day 2018

The annual History Day Contest, conducted in March 2018, involved more than 5,000 young scholars at regional and state History Day events. The Minnesota society once again awarded prizes for History Day day entries in the area of American Colonial History, and several Minnesota Dames served as volunteer judges.
The 2018-2019 theme is "Triumph & Tragedy in History." Minnesota Dames will continue to sponsor prizes and provide volunteer judges.
Minnesota History Day is sponsored by the Minnesota Historical Society in partnership with the University of Minnesota.
