The project-based contest provides an opportunity for students to demonstrate their historical research skills in one of five categories: documentary, exhibit, paper, performance and website. Guided by an annual theme, students are encouraged to choose a topic that matches their personal interests. The 2017 theme is Taking a Stand in History.
