The National History Day Contest encourages middle and high school students to conduct original research on historical topics. Students begin by presenting projects in their classrooms and schools. The best projects advance to local and state competitions. The top entries in each category will compete in the 2019 National History Day Contest, June 9-13, 2019, at the University of Maryland, College Park. This year’s theme is Triumph and Tragedy in History.
