Romoland School District National History Day 2020-2021
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 topics' 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.
2020-2021 Theme and Competition
The 2020-2021 theme is Communication in History: The Key to Understanding. This year's National History Day Competition will be held virtually.
