2019 History Day Info


2018 History Day Info 



Welcome to the National History Day program and contest in Alameda County!  Students all over the U.S. each year research a topic in history and relate it to the annual theme. There are a wide range of topics available and many different methods for publishing research.  Students can write a historical paper, produce an exhibit, create a documentary, publish a website, or act out a performance.  If you are wondering why you should help your students participate in history day, watch this 3-minute video: https://youtu.be/683GBqllgk8


After completing a project, students have another choice:  whether to participate or to compete.  Winners from schools may move on to the county contest; winners at county may move on to the state, and winners at state may move onto nationals. Ultimately, the project is about learning. Whether you are a history or language arts or English teacher, doing some type of history day project teaches important research skills aligned to the Common Core and the new California State History Social Science Framework, and is the ultimate hands-on, inquiry based, project learning experience for students. Please use and modify the lessons below as needed. 



There are few experiences as exciting as participating in history day!   We hope the information below helps you to create your very best History Day Project. We look forward to seeing you at Alameda County History Day !
