VOLUNTEER FOR NHD IN WISCONSIN
Volunteering at a the National History Day in Wisconsin State Event is a rewarding experience. There is simply no other place where you can see so many young people excited about history. Judges work on panels of three to interview students, provide feedback on their work, and select finalists. Volunteers are also needed to serve as room monitors, supervising competition areas and managing the competition schedule. A complimentary breakfast and lunch will be provided for all volunteers as well as a 2011 Wisconsin History Day T-shirt. To register, sign up online.
POLICYMAKING WITH A HISTORICAL LENS
Policymaking with a Historical Lens is a specialized research-based class for advanced high school students, utilizing the world-class records at the Wisconsin Historical Society on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus. Wisconsin was the starting place for some of the policies and reforms now being debated across the nation. Delve into these topics and more as you apply historical knowledge to policies that shape our lives today.
This class and others are part of the Accelerated Learning Program, developed by the Wisconsin Center for Academically Talented Youth (WCATY) for academically talented high school students who want to explore interdisciplinary knowledge in a college learning environment. Students in this selective three-week residential program gather on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus to challenge themselves and build relationships with peers that will last a lifetime. The program begins June 19 and runs through July 9. To learn more about the program, visit the WCATY website. Applications are due April 29, 2011.
