Theme & Topics

Each year, National History Day® frames students’ research within a historical theme. The theme is chosen for broad application to world, national, or state history and its relevance to ancient history or to the more recent past. The 2020-2021 theme is "Communication in History: The Key to Understanding.” The American Heritage Center has selected a wide variety of digitized materials from its vast collection of primary sources that can assist you with your History Day projects.
