The Cumberland County Historical Society is thinking about expanding our workshops and programming to help students with their National History Day projects. CCHS staff and volunteers are fortunate to have been NHD judges, and we have always enjoyed seeing the work produced by students in Cumberland County, the State of Pennsylvania, and around the country.

Beginning in 2017, CCHS decided to collect the projects which advanced to the Region 8 competition at Messiah College that were related to Cumberland County history, preserving the excellent work done by local students. Now we want to assist students in studying local history as well as helping students learn how to conduct research using primary resources on any topic.
