History Day in Indiana is a year-long program dedicated to enhancing history
education in elementary and secondary schools. Students in grades four through
12 explore a historical subject and then use their research to create imaginative
exhibits, original performances, media documentaries, websites and papers. The
2014 theme was “Rights and Responsibilities in History.”

IHS has
organized Indiana’s participation in the National History Day program for more
than a decade, and more than 4,800 students from across the state participated
in 2014. For more information on National History Day in Indiana and other IHS
