2020-2021 Calendar—Keeping track of the dates is important! Use this calendar to ensure that you are on track with your History Day project. Review the dates of registration and fairs!
2021 Hawaii Communication in History Topics—One of the most important moments of your History Day Project is picking your topic. It should be something you’re genuinely interested in, so you’ll know you want to spend a lot of time with the subject. Make sure you also think about the audiences for your project (teachers, judges, community members)!
Purdue OWL—Please refer to Chicago Manual of Style on this website. This is an excellent website that will help you make sure all of your citations and bibliographic information are correctly formatted. For researchers, the bibliography (listing of all research resources) is often considered the most important part of their entire paper, so try to give it the loving attention it needs. Projects that perform well always have strong bibliographies paired with strong presentation.
ScholarSpace at University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa—A lot of resources can only be accessed by paying a lot of money to get to them, so it’s always really wonderful when educational institutions create spaces that provide open-access to our larger communities. ScholarSpace gives you access to a variety of resources. You can type in a search, or you can browse by subject, author, or UHM department (Anthropology, History, etc.).
eVols at University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa—Similar to ScholarSpace, eVols gives you open-access to academic and community scholarship.
