Each year more than half a million students participate in the National History Day Contest. Students choose a historical topic related to the annual theme, and then conduct primary and secondary research. Check the list of premium resources and special collections on this page that can help you find the information you need.
After you have analyzed and interpreted your sources, and have drawn a conclusion about the significance of your topic, you will then be able to present your work as a paper, an exhibit, a performance, a documentary, or a website. Visit the National History Day Contest page for more information about the contest.
