Romoland School District National History Day 2021-2022

  • What is National History Day?

    National History Day, is a year-long educational program that encourages students to explore local, state, national, and world history. After selecting a historical topic that relates to an annual theme, students conduct extensive research by using libraries, archives, museums, and oral history interviews. They analyze and interpret their findings, draw conclusions about their topic's significance in history, and create final projects that present their work. These projects can be entered into a series of competitions, from the local to the national level, where they are evaluated by historians and educators. 

    2021-2022 Theme

    The 2021-2022 theme is Debate & Diplomacy in History: Successes, Failures, Consequences
