National History Day Theme 2019

Humboldt County History Day

Each spring, students in 4th grade through high school compete in Humboldt County History Day, held at Humboldt State University. Through the rigorous process of researching and preparing creative and original History Day projects, students learn and analyze issues, ideas, people and events in history and apply that knowledge to their projects. The projects must reflect that year’s National History Day theme. The 2019 theme is Triumph & Tragedy in History.

Students can participate individually or in groups. Students in grades 4 and 5 must use posters to interpret the theme.  Those in grades 6-12 choose from one of five categories: Documentaries, Exhibits, Historical papers, Performances, and Websites.

Local history experts judge the projects and select those who will advance to State History Day. Winners at State compete at National History Day near Washington D.C. in June.
