The Idaho State Museum Student Documentary Film Festival
This past school year, students across Idaho produced short documentary films for the National History Day in Idaho Contest and as a part of the collaboration between the Boise School District, the Minidoka National Historic Site and the National World War II Museum. These opportunities gave Idaho students a voice in the historical narrative as they researched important historical themes with significant impact. This event has been generously sponsored by our community partners at Idaho Public Television, CapEd, Jones Williams Fuhrman Gourley, PA, Idaho Feels Like Home Realty, and Fort Street Station. The Idaho State Museum will be screening student documentary films that address topics such as Japanese Incarceration, the Vietnam War, the Morse Telegraph, Philo T. Farnsworth, women's suffrage, MTV, and military communication methods. While watching the student documentary films, enjoy general admission seating and light refreshments. This event is free but registration is required. Admission to the Museum and the new exhibition, Trailblazing Women of Idaho, is included with your registration. Register online for your seat HERE. Seating capacity is limited to 100. We are following current CDC guidance related to masking and physical distancing. About NHD: National History Day in Idaho (NHD) is a year-long student-led academic program focused on historical research, interpretation, and creative expression for 4th-12th grade students across Idaho. By participating in NHD, students become writers, filmmakers, web designers, playwrights and artists as they create unique contemporary expressions of history. The experience culminates in a series of competitions at the local and state levels and an annual national contest in June. Students who participate in NHD build skills that are key to success in college, career, and citizenship. NHD teaches critical thinking, writing, and research skills.
