What do you want to do?

Your project starts with an idea about a topic. Remember that your topic needs to relate to the annual theme. Outside of relating to your theme and teacher approval, your topic can be any time, place or event in history. It can be local, national or world history. Is there a time period in history that you have always wanted to study? It is a good idea to pick something that you are curious or passionate about. For inspiration, check out our INDepth Stories or Destination Indiana. Why not take a look at our special prizes and draw inspiration from Indiana-related topics?

In addition to developing a topic, you also need to decide how you will present your topic. After doing some preliminary research on your topic, what type of presentation do you think would work best? What type of presentation do you think would highlight your abilities? You can choose to do a website, exhibit, performance, documentary or paper. For more information about these categories and project examples, see some of our past state winners here. More examples of National winners can be found here.
