History Day 2017 theme — ‘Taking a Stand in History’ — invites labor history projects

From the Minneapolis Labor Review
December 16, 2016

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.

The full catalogue may be found online at

Both the Labor Review and Union Advocate offer online archives of back issues going back more than 100 years.

For the Labor Review archive, 1907 to present, visit minneapolisunions.org.

For the Union Advocate archive, 1900-2010, visit advocate.stpaulunions.org.
