Michigan History Day: This educational program offers a fascinating opportunity to move social science beyond rote learning. Students perform self-directed research on an individually chosen topic. They then present their work through the allied disciplines of art, literature, music, drama, and visual communications, in addition to writing. The projects grow; participants are encouraged to expand and improve their work between each stage of competition. Learn more about Michigan History Day
