Ohio History Day: Region 6 Competition Details 

Ohio History Day is an exciting opportunity for students from all across the state to select a historical topic, conduct research using primary and secondary sources, and present their findings in a manner that best suits them, whether it be a paper, performance, documentary, website, or exhibit. Ohio History Day is an affiliate of National History Day, so this contest exists at local, state, and national levels, giving students the chance to advance through the competition all the way to the national level.


CSRAB is overseeing the Region 6 in conjunction with Ohio History Connection, who runs the state contest. The Region 6 competition is for students in 6th through 12th grades who live in Delaware, Fairfield, Fayette, Franklin, Knox, Licking, Madison, Perry, Pickaway, and Union counties and will take place at Ohio Wesleyan University on March 9, 2019.
