2020 History Day Theme:
Breaking Barriers in History
Please visit the following links for an updated rule book and explanation of the guidelines for the current school year:
Jordan District does not hold a History Day fair/competition. All participating teachers will hold a classroom or school fair, then register their top student entries for the regional History Day event.
History Day provides an opportunity for students to become historians as they explore a topic related to the National History Day theme. Students express what they learn through creative and original performances, documentaries, papers, or three-dimensional exhibits. This educational program fosters academic achievement and intellectual growth, while developing critical thinking and problem solving skills that will help students manage and use information now and in the future.
