2022 Hawaiʻi History Day Press Kit

Our local news community wants to know about all the amazing accomplishments of our Hawaiʻi History Day students and they want to hear from you, their teachers, their family, and their schools!

We wanted to provide tools and resources for our History Day family members to tell their stories, and thus, we would like to offer this press kit that we have put together. This kit includes:

  1. An information and resource sheet on how to use our Press Kit
  2. A template Press Release that you can use
  3. Images of our History Day and Organizational logos (Below)

If you have any questions or would like further support, we encourage you to contact us for assistance at historyday@hihumanities.org.
