2022 Bucks Mont Regional NHD Contest Information

After much consideration and with direction from the national branch of National History Day, the 2022 Bucks Mont Regional NHD Contest will be fully virtual, just like 2021.

Getting Started

Every year National History Day® frames student research within a historical theme. The theme is chosen for its broad application to global, national, or state history, and its relevance to both recent and ancient history.

The 2022 theme is Debate & Diplomacy in History: Successes, Failures, and Consequences.

Teachers can learn more about the 2022 Bucks Mont Regional National History Day Contest and find helpful resources in 2022 Introduction to Teachers.
