National History Day

Help Cholla High School students to learn more about the Middle East – and get an early start on their University of Arizona studies. Cholla is continuing to offer a yearlong Middle East Studies course, which also gives deserving students 3 UA MENAS credits. Past students have gone on to continue their studies at the UA – and often have continued taking MENAS classes. You can help in two ways:

- Contribute to our UA crowdfund campaign, a tax-deductible contribution that goes directly towards the students’ tuition: https://crowdfund.arizona.edu/project/11551

- Give your tax credit donation to Cholla’s National History Day Club, which funds these and other Cholla students’ participation in the National History Day competition (for which the Middle East Studies students create Middle East-related projects): https://az-tucson.intouchreceipting.com/ , click on the “contribute without a login” button, select Cholla High, National History Day TX.
