National History Day is an educational program devoted to the learning of history. Last fall, students chose a topic related to the annual theme (“Debate and Diplomacy”). After analyzing and drawing conclusions about their topics’ significance in history, they presented their work in an original project. The district contest was held February 25th at Chadron State College. Chadron high school had 3 students who placed at the district contest and qualified for the state contest in Lincoln on April 9, 2022.

As a school counselor I know that many of you have concerns about how to make a college education more affordable.
