The Herbert Hoover Presidential Library-Museum is committed to National History Day and to helping students with their projects. Before you begin work on an entry for competition, you, your teacher, and your parents should carefully read the Contest Rule Book.

Every year National History Day® frames students’ research within a historical theme. The theme is chosen for the broad application to world, national, or state history and its relevance to ancient history or to the more recent past. This year’s theme is Conflict and Compromise in History. The intentional selection of the theme for NHD is to provide an opportunity for students to push past the antiquated view of history as mere facts and dates and drill down into historical content to develop perspective and understanding.
