NCSS Centennial Celebration

NCSS Virtual Conference

December 4-6, 2020

The year 2021 marks one hundred years of NCSS service to social studies teachers, administrators, and professionals. To celebrate the significance of this monumental moment in the history of social studies education, NCSS is planning a year-long calendar experience of signature events. We invite all friends of social studies to help us make this a memorable year of professional learning to highlight NCSS milestone achievements and members and to chart our path together for the next century. ​

The NCSS Centennial Celebration will begin with our first-ever NCSS Virtual Conference from December 4-6, 2020 offering innovative learning online for your professional growth with our partners for this event, the American Bar Association’s Division for Public Education and the National Council for Geographic Education.

From there, our Centennial Celebration continues with the 101st NCSS Annual Conference in Minneapolis (scheduled for November 19-21, 2021) and culminates with festivities at the 100th Anniversary Conference in Washington, DC (scheduled for December 10-12, 2021). No matter where you are located, you can be part of the celebration by attending one or all events!

While it is a historic year for our association, it is also an unprecedented time for the world as we all unite to face the coronavirus pandemic and its impact on nations, our country, local communities and everyday lives. To ensure the well-being, health, and safety of our annual conference attendees, we will continue to closely monitor advisories issued by our conference host cities pertaining to large event gatherings.
