Frontiers in History
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 2022-2023 theme is Frontiers in History: People, Places, Ideas.
Save the Date! National History Day will be hosting our annual theme Q&A session on Thursday, September 29 at 7 pm ET / 4 pm PT.
