Since its creation during the autumn of 1980, the Utah History Fair, Utah's National History Day affiliate, (www.nhd.org), has helped tens of thousands of Utah’s students, grades 4-12, learn, experience, and enjoy history.

In Utah, students first compete at the school level. The top projects in each category at the school level then participate at a regional competition. Winning projects at the regional level then compete at the Utah State History Fair Contest. The top two projects from each category are invited to attend the Kenneth E. Behring National History Day Contest.
