2014 THEME - RIGHTS & RESPONSIBILITIES in HISTORY
Each year, National History Day establishes a broad theme for history fair competition. Students may choose a specific topic from any era of local, regional, state, national, or world history, but their projects must demonstrate clearly how their topics relate to the annual theme. Relevance to the annual theme is an important criterion in the judging of history fair entries in all categories.
Students should be careful to limit the scope of their chosen topic to make the research and interpretation manageable. In other words, students should narrow their topics to focus on an issue that can be explained and interpreted within the limits of their project category.
