About National History Day
What Is History Day?
The History Day Program is an exciting way to study history and learn about issues, ideas, people, and events that are of interest to students. History Day lets students express what they have learned through creative and original performances, media documentaries, papers, or three-dimensional exhibits. History Day provides classroom teachers with an effective vehicle for teaching not only the content of history (and other subjects, such as art, theater, and media), but the basic components of critical thinking. It helps students develop the skills to think critically, not only about school work, but about the many decisions they must confront as citizens.
The Annual Theme
Each year a broad theme is selected for the History Day contest. Topics may come from local, regional, national, or world history. Regardless of the topic chosen, the research and conclusions must relate to the annual theme.
