National History Day offers students with a passion for history the chance to research and present a topic that goes above and beyond what they learn in class. After finding a topic that fits the annual theme, students complete research that helps them create a paper, documentary, exhibit, website, or performance sharing a historical argument on that topic. Students compete individually or in a small group at the regional competition. Success at the regional level can lead to an invitation to the State contest.
