Subject: [Libs-Or] National History Day - prizes for use of Chronicling America historic newspapers

Greetings from the Oregon Digital Newspaper Program (ODNP)!

I'm pleased to announce that the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) will be awarding prizes and recognition to middle and high school students who use Chronicling America in their National History Day projects, including cash prizes for exceptional use of the newspaper archives for junior and senior students in all submission categories, as well as certificates of recognition for all National History Day participants who incorporate Chronicling America in their project research.

Chronicling America (http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/) is the NEH's and Library of Congress' Historic American Newspapers online keyword-searchable database. The site now hosts 5 million pages of historic (pre-1923) newspaper content from across the U.S., including several titles from Oregon. Please spread the word about this great opportunity to any students and/or teachers that are participating in National History Day. (For more details and the press release from NEH, please see our ODNP blog: http://odnp.wordpress.com/2012/06/14/recognition-and-prizes-to-be-awarded-for-student-use-of-chronicling-america-in-national-history-day-competition/)
