Across the country, high school students participate in National History Day by submitting their independent research in this national competition. The theme this year  is “Triumph & Tragedy in History”.  Students select their own topic, find the significance of their event in history and create a project in their chosen area: performance, documentary, research paper, exhibit or web site.   Read more about National History Day here or
