After deciphering the theme for 2016, students will select a topic for their research.  The topic should be narrow and researchable.  Selecting a topic such as WWII is far too large.  Instead, you should choose an aspect of WWII, for example, FDR’s involvement, focusing on his Leadership and Legacy.

NHD also offers a list of topic possibilities as part of its annual theme book.  For more information, check out the  NHD Theme Sheet, and the NHD Theme Book.
