Dames Support History Day 2018

It's once again time to prepare for the annual History Day Contest, coming up in March 2018, involving 5,000 young scholars at regional and state History Day events. Dames will be awarding prizes for History Day day entries in the area of American Colonial History, and are recruiting members to serve as volunteer judges. This year's theme is "Conflict and Compromise in History."
 
In 2017 Minnesota dames sponsored two $200 prizes for History Day entries in the area of American Colonial History.
 
Minnesota History Day is sponsored by the Minnesota Historical Society in partnership with the University of Minnesota.
