History Day is an exciting, history-based learning experience for
students who not only learn about issues, ideas, people, and events in
history but who also apply this learning, through creative and original
productions. Students participating in History Day develop valuable
research and analytical skills as they process information they've
gathered from research of primary and secondary resources, then draw
their own conclusions about their topic's significance in history. The 2015 theme is Leadership and Legacy in History.
Each year, students from grades 4 through 12 select, develop, and
complete standards-based projects focusing on the theme, reflecting
local, state, national, and world history. Students may participate as individuals or in groups. All students work with a teacher or
coach affiliated with a local school in order to prepare for History
Day. Students who compete at county level have the opportunity of
qualifying to advance to state level, just as those competing at state
level may be selected to compete at national level.

Junior Model United Nations
Junior Model United Nations allows students step into the shoes of ambassadors from the United Nations to debate current issues on the organization's vast agenda. Student "delegates" prepare draft resolutions, plot strategy, negotiate with supporters and adversaries, resolve conflicts, and navigate the U.N.'s rules of procedures - all in the interest of mobilizing "international cooperation" to resolve critical issues.
Students research global problems drawn from today's headlines in preparation for the San Diego Regional Junior Model United Nations Conference. This prestigious conference is held every May at the University of San Diego and it is here that JMUN delegates discuss topics including peace and security, human rights, the environment, food and hunger, economic development, and globalization.
For information regarding the Junior Model United Nations program in San Diego please contact Anne Anthony firstname.lastname@example.org.
