National History Day in Asia began in 2008, initiated by Concordia International School Shanghai. Over the next several years, participation increased considerably, with hundreds of students from dozens of local and international schools taking part. Students who place first or second in the Senior Division event have the opportunity to advance to the U.S. National History Day Final Contest, held at the University of Maryland, College Park in June. With the success of History Day in Shanghai, the program has now spread to South Korea, Indonesia, Singapore, and Thailand.

Winning students & their teachers enjoy a tour of Shanghai’s history led by Stella Dong, author of Shanghai: Rise & Fall of a Decadent City

National History Day in Asia, now NHD China, has been an exciting way for teachers, students, and community members from a variety of backgrounds to gather, discuss, present, and appreciate high quality historical research.
