To begin your National History Day Project you should begin by asking yourself a few of questions.  The first is:  “What in history – a time period, an event, or perhaps, an individual or group of individuals – do I find interesting?”   The second is:  “What types of projects would I like to do and how does my interest in history fit into these projects?”  The third question you should ask yourself is:  “What am I talented at?  Am I good at designing websites?  Am I a natural actor?  Am I a good writer?”  Finally, you need to determine whether you want to work by yourself or in a group.

Remember that whatever you chose for your topic you will have to relate it to the 2016 theme:  Exploration, Encounter, Exchange in History
