MINNEAPOLIS —The theme for the 2017 National History Day competition is well-suited to labor history topics: “Taking a Stand in History.”
For Minnesota’s State History Day competition, prizes in labor history will be awarded jointly by the Minneapolis Labor Review newspaper, St. Paul Union Advocate newspaper, and University of Minnesota Labor Education Service.
The three labor history prize sponsors encourage students to research local labor history topics.
To help teachers and students find ideas for History Day projects, the three organizations have provided an extensive list of topics and resources in the State History Day Topical Prize Catalogue.
