2023 Hawaiʻi Frontiers 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)! See this year’s list of project Hawai’i-specific project topics that connect to the theme Frontiers in History: People, Places, Ideas. You are not required to do Hawai’i-specific topics, but it is great to explore the history in our backyard!
