What is History Day?
History Day is an educational program that encourages students to engage and explore the past in a creative, hands on way. The program requires students to practice critical thinking, extensively research and analyze a topic, and showcase their understanding through a project presentation of their choice. In the words of a previous student participant, "It's a life changing experience."

Every year, a theme is released to guide student research. The theme is broad enough to allow choice in selecting a topic that is most interesting to each individual student, while still examining history in a challenging way and producing an informative project.
This year's theme is Frontiers in History: People, Places, Ideas
