New York will continue to participate in National History Day, which assists teachers and schools in meeting state learning standards by offering students a hands-on approach to the study of history.

State Senator James Seward. says the Fenimore Art Museum in Cooperstown will receive $125,000 to coordinate statewide participation in the annual event.

Each year, almost 150 schools and more than 10,000 students in grades six through twelve participate with regional winners coming to Cooperstown to present their projects for statewide honors.
