Introduction to the 2022/2023 Theme


During the 2022-2023 school year all National History Day students will dive into a topic based on the theme: Frontiers in History: People, Places, Ideas.

You will ask questions about time, place and context, cause and effect, change over time, and impact and significance.

It is important to consider not only when and where events happened, but also why they occurred, and what factors contributed to their development.
