I emailed a copy of the Teachers' History Day Handbook, step-by-step information for registering your students begins on page 13 of the guide. This handbook is also available at http://www.tennesseehistory.org/Handbook.htm.

You will begin this process by clicking the "Begin Registration" button on the right side of the site: http://www.tennesseehistory.org/historyday.htm. Our theme this year is "Exploration, Encounter, Exchange in History."

We are so excited about History Day this year and hope to make it one of the best yet! If you have any questions about registering your students or general questions about history day projects please feel free to email me at fdbbrcco@memphis.edu or Susan O'Donovan at odonovan@memphis.edu.

ENTRY LIMITATIONS IN EFFECT

Teachers will be limited to the number of entries they may submit to the district contest. Each teacher may bring 2 entries in each category and in each division. Teachers may sponsor students at both the Junior and Senior levels. Refer to these handy charts to determine how many students you may bring to the district contest. What does this mean? This means that you can bring a total of 50 students (in each division) per teacher, but you must spread them out across the various categories.
