History Day

History Day work has just started this month. With each new year, there is a new theme. This year’s theme is “Conflict and Compromise in History.” Last year’s theme was “Taking A Stand.”

The competition day will be on February 1st, and the rules will be the same as last year. History Day is usually for Freshmen, in Accelerated History class, but students in 11th grade, U.S. History, also have to participate.

The competition is usually held in the cafeteria where students’ projects will be judged at least twice by two different judges. After that, teachers will decide which students make it to the regionals competition, which is held at a different location.

At regionals, students will have the choice to redo their project, or to add improvements to it. They will also be judged twice by different judges. The judges then will decide who makes it to the State competition.

Let’s hope this year goes well for all students who choose to participate in National History Day!
