Welcome to the National History Challenge
The National History Challenge is a free research-based competition for Australian students. It gives students a chance to be historians, researching world history, examining Australia’s past, investigating their community or exploring their own roots. It emphasises and rewards quality research, the use of community resources and effective presentation. More information
The History Teachers’ Association of Australia (HTAA) organises and runs the NHC.
The HTAA aims to promote public support for a more widespread involvement in the teaching, learning and making of history. It encourages differing perspectives on the global experience, in the belief that an understanding of our diverse yet common past is a prerequisite to informed participation in Australian society.
