Florida History Day
Resources for Florida History Day 2022
Florida History Day is an annual statewide activity sponsored by the Museum of Florida History. A Florida History Day entry can address any person, event or idea from any time or place in history, but it must relate to the 2022 National History Day theme Debate & Diplomacy in History: Successes, Failures, Consequences.
As described in the NHD 2022 Contest Theme Book, "Some topics might be stories of debate and diplomacy, while others might cover debate with little diplomatic effort or diplomacy without debate. Students must investigate to determine whether one or both of those themes are present in their narrative."
