Welcome to the Washington History Day home page! This site is designed to provide information for students, educators, institutions, and any others interested in Washington History Day. We have tried to include pages and links which will provide the necessary information for getting involved in Washington History Day and all that it has to offer students and teachers.
National History Day encourages students to become historians by developing research, analysis, presentation and social skills. Working individually or in groups, junior (grades 6-8) and senior (9-12) division students select a topic related to an annual theme. They conduct extensive historical research using primary sources, articles, and books, then distill their research and analysis into a dramatic performance, multimedia documentary, museum exhibit, website, or research paper.
