The National History Day Contest

The National History Day contest is the nation’s oldest and most highly regarded humanities contest for students in grades 6-12. This project engages more than 700,000 students annually. Show your creativity by making history come alive in an exhibit, documentary, paper, or performance.  By producing one of these projects, you have all kinds of opportunities to win awards and scholarships, as well as learn about your history.  If you are in grades 6-12, you may enter the contest in either the junior (grades 6-8) or senior (grades 9-12) divisions. You may participate individually, or as part of a group of up to five students.  Public, Private & Home Schools are welcome to participate.

National History Day invites students to research topics related to the theme, "Rights and Responsibilities in History." The theme is broad enough in scope to encourage investigation of topics ranging from local to world history. To understand the historical importance of their topics, students must ask questions of time and place, cause and effect, change over time, and impact and significance. They must ask not only when events happened, but also why they happened and what impact they had. What factors contributed to their development? Regardless of the topic selected, students must not only present a description of it, but must also draw conclusions about how their topic affected individuals, communities, nations, or the world.
