Dear Senator Specter: We are writing to seek an appropriation of $5 million in the 2008 budget for the National History Day, Inc. (NHD) program that was authorized by P.L. 108-474, the American History and Civics Education Act. All states would receive a portion of the $5 million appropriation. Through your leadership, Senator, our state\'s most under-served student populations in urban and rural areas can access the educational benefits of National History Day. PA National History Day officials estimate they can leverage each federal dollar to earn an additional $3.06. With volunteer labor (mentors, teachers, organizers) valued at another $280,000, this appropriation can be a powerful tool to help Pennsylvania students achieve their highest potential. Congress has unanimously passed resolutions recognizing the growing need to improve the teaching and learning of history education. As George Washington wrote,
