Welcome educators!  You are the backbone of the National History Day process and we are here to support you in any possible way.  Please do not hesitate to reach out to our State Coordinator or one of our Teacher Ambassadors with any questions or assistance you might have.  We will keep this page up to date with information as we obtain it! 

This year's theme is Triumph and Tragedy in History.  There is some great information  on the theme,  topic suggestions, and classroom activities  in the theme book.

All participants will receive continuing education credits!
