About Manatee History Day

NHD 2024 Theme Logo.png

Please note: We've Changed Our Name!

Manatee History Fair is now Manatee History Day!

 

The Manatee History Day Club is led by staff members of Manatee Village Historical Park. 

Manatee History Day is the local affiliate of the National History Day (NHD) program. 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. 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an opportunity for students to push past the antiquated view of history as mere facts & dates and drill down into historical content to develop perspective and understanding.


The NHD theme provides a focused way to increase students’ historical understanding by developing a lens to read history, an organizational structure that helps students place information in the correct context and finally, the ability to see connections over time. Instead of reading a textbook, students are asked to do research for information during that time period. Students use sources such as newspapers, diaries, letters, photographs, government records, and oral history interviews to answer questions about the past.  Students present their findings in a creative way by making their own exhibit boards, dramatic performances, documentaries, websites, or research papers.
