National History Day Competition 2018 Supported by Churchill Archive for Schools

The 2018 theme is Conflict and Compromise in History

The National Contest for the National History Day® competition is the final stage of a series of contests at local and state/affiliate levels. Students begin their journey by presenting their projects in classrooms, schools, and districts around the world. Top entries are invited to the state/affiliate level contests. The top two entries in every category at the state/affiliate level are then invited to the National Contest.

The 2018 National Contest will be held June 10-14, 2018 at the University of Maryland, College Park.

Each year the National History Day competition frames students’ research within a specific historical theme.

“The intentional selection of the theme for NHD is to provide an opportunity for students to push past the antiquated view of history as mere facts and dates and drill down into historical content to develop perspective and understanding.”
