Congratulations to Luisa Castillo for being named this year's recipient of the Historical Society of New Mexico’s Dorothy Woodward Award. This award is given annually to recognize accomplishment for the advancement of education in New Mexico history. Her work educating New Mexico’s youth on our state’s history, mentoring other educators, supporting the New Mexico Humanities Council in developing instructional materials as part of the Teaching with Primary Sources project, and in particular promoting participation in National History Day, all are significant contributions impacting countless lives. The Historical Society of New Mexico and the New Mexico Humanities Council commends Luisa on her achievements as an educator and sincerely appreciates the work she does!

Welcome! You are invited to join a webinar: Teaching History Virtually - Setting Expectations for Virtual Learning. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email about joining the webinar.

Given the large numbers of teachers trying to shift to a virtual teaching environment, NHD's amazing Lynne O'Hara is going to offer weekly (free) live sessions for teachers called Teaching History Virtually. In each session, she’ll focus on a particular skill (setting expectations for online learning, analyzing a primary source remotely, etc.) and feature a particular partner to share their resources. They are planning a Q&A session where we can help answer as many of teachers’ questions as we can. It's going to launch on Wednesday, March 25 at noon ET / 9am PT with the Smithsonian Learning Lab as our special guest. The program will be live for the first 500 people to join, and the recording will be posted later in the day to NHD YouTube and social media channels.

Please bear with us as we transition to a virtual state contest. It's a fluid situation and we're doing the best we can. We are posting up to date instructions and guidance for teachers, judges, and students on the contest site at http://nm.nhd.org. You can also submit questions and register there. Yes, we ARE still looking for judges! :-) Thanks for supporting NHD.

03/12/2020

On Wednesday March 11, 2020, Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham declared a public health emergency and advised all large public events be postponed to limit the spread of the virus COVID-19. The New Mexico Humanities Council’s main focus is and always will be the well-being of our NHD students, teachers, judges, volunteers and staff.

As a result, our NM State Contest is going VIRTUAL! We are working closely with the National office as well as all other affiliate coordinators to ensure a fair contest and the best possible experience for all. The National contest in June will absolutely still take place, but plans are in place to hold it remotely if necessary.

Conducting the contest remotely will require some extra work for some categories, so we are adjusting the schedule. ALL projects must be submitted by Thursday, April 16, 2020 by 11:59 p.m. (NM time). LATE ENTRIES WILL BE DISQUALIFIED (exceptions will NOT be made for any student.) Judging will take place over the following week and we plan to stream the awards ceremony.

An email containing important information will be sent in a couple days. PLEASE wait to contact us, until the email is sent to all participants and teachers with the necessary details.

thank you, and stay well~
