For the first time, National History Day will be hosted in West Chester at the Chester County Historical Society. Over 2,000 sixth through twelfth grade students and their families will arrive from Chester and Delaware counties to be judged on their original research on the theme Rights and Responsibilities. Successful presentors move on to regional and national competitions. See West Chester’s National History Day welcome page for further information. The event is proudly sponsored by the West Chester Business Improvement District which believes student interpretation of our rights and responsibilities will lead to a better understanding of our place in history.
