CHOOSING A TOPIC
Choosing a great topic is the first step to a successful National History Day project. There are several things to consider. First, is your teacher requiring you to choose a topic in a certain area, say The Civil War, or Colorado History? If so, then think about what interests you most about that required area. If you teacher is letting you choose any topic, then think about things that you like to do, or things that other people might not know a lot about. Remember, every subject has a history, so you could pick a topic that has to do with sports, or music, or something scientific. If you work with what you already like, you will have a lot of fun with your project.
