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 “ Frontiers in History: People, Places, Ideas“. 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.
