Minnesota History Day – Start at your library!
History Day is an inter-disciplinary research project for students in grades 6-12.
Students choose a topic that relates to an annual theme, research that topic, and develop their research into one of five presentation categories: research paper, exhibit, documentary, performance, or website. Students may then enter their projects into History Day competitions at school, regional, state, and national levels.
History Day teaches students to:
- Conduct in-depth research
- Use primary and secondary sources
- Read a variety of texts
- Analyze and synthesize information
- Write and present historical content
And statewide Legacy funds are available to provide transportation from schools to libraries. For more information contact Chris Magnusson
