National History Day is a nation-wide program for students in grades 6-12. The emphasis is for students to do history. Each year a theme is established around which individual and group projects are created. This year’s theme is: “Innovation in History: Impact and Change”

Beginning at the school level and on through regional and state competitions student projects are judged based upon the degree and competency of each project’s historical accuracy and interpretation. The best projects from each state History Day advance to the National History Day contest, held in early June 2010, in Washington, D.C.

Each student working alone or in a group will create a History Day Project that will be presented and judged on Tuesday February 16, 2010. Project and topic ideas will be addressed in the first semester; the bulk of research will be conducted, analyzed and formatted in the second semester.
