Student History Events

History Day

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.

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.

If you have questions about San Diego County History Day, please contact Janet Mulder at For more information on National History Day visit: NHDSD. Information regarding teacher orientation and judging will be posted when available.

Junior Model United Nations

Junior Model United Nations allows students to 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.
