Outreach & Workshops

Outreach Visits

The Ohio History Day staff are available to come out to your classroom for an interactive, hands on History Day experience! Outreach visits are $3.00 per student for a minimum of ten students, which includes the cost of travel and materials. Presentations are usually designed to fit a 45 minute to 1 hour class period and can be repeated up to six times in one day. However, we can work with you to tailor an experience to your class's needs. Contact the State Coordinator to schedule an Outreach visit.
