CREATING A PERFORMANCE
A performance is a live, dramatic presentation of your topic's significance in history. A performance should be a scripted portrayal based on research of your chosen topic. Your script should be structured on a thesis statement, supporting statements, and a conclusion. Your performance should have dramatic appeal, but not at the expense of historical information. The performance category is well suited to topic that carry a great emotional impact, or that don't rely heavily on visual resources. Both groups and individuals may enter this category.
