Each year, National History Day® chooses a historical theme that provides a framework for students’ research. The purposefully broad theme encourages investigation into local, national, or world history from any period of time. Conducting historical research through the focused lens provided by the annual theme allows students to develop perspective, make connections over time, and place their topics into historical context by considering the time and circumstances associated with their topics.
The 2020-2021 theme is Communication in History : The Key to Understanding.
