Leadership & Legacy in History
Click here to learn more about the theme.
During the 2014-2015 school year, National History Day invites students to research topics related to the theme "Leadership & Legacy in History." As is the case each year, the theme is broad enough to encourage investigation of topics ranging from local to world history, and from ancient times to the recent past. To understand the historical importance of their topics, students need to ask questions about time, place, and context; cause and effect; change over time; and impact and significance. They ought to consider not only when and where events happened, but also why they occurred, what factors contributed to their development, and what effects they had on broader history. NHD projects should go beyond mere description to include analysis of information and draw conclusions.
