EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU) -- The eleventh annual National History Day kicked off Tuesday evening at the Chippewa Valley Museum.

The event is designed to support student historians and researchers from sixth to twelfth grades.

Students were able to tour the museum’s exhibits, library and archives for ideas and learn about the resources available to help them with their upcoming projects.

“The project itself is meant to prepare the kids to really hone in their research skills. They can become and amateur historian for that school year”, says Karen Jacobson with the Chippewa Valley Museum. “It helps with them with their technology skills. They work with documentary for instance and it really helps them to become better writers.”

The students are able to select from different categories for their projects from building a website to writing a traditional historical paper.
