National History Day is a model of multidisciplinary, project-based learning that frames the academic year. Students will sharpen skills in research methods, critical thinking, and synthesis of information from diverse sources. The process of project creation and competition is both highly demanding and highly rewarding for students and teachers. Each year students explore a historical topic related to the annual theme and present their research through research papers, documentaries, exhibits, dramatic performances, or websites. In addition, students must be able to effectively present their findings and interpretations of their topics to a panel of judges. They must also be able to answer questions from the judges about the content of their project, as well as their research process. Successful entries proceed from the regional competition to the state competition in Columbus and the national competition in Washington D.C.
