National History Day 2022: Process Paper

Rule 18: Process Paper

A process paper is required for projects in every category. The process paper must be 500 words or fewer, and must not include quotes, images, or captions. The process paper words are counted separately and are not part of the word count in the paper, exhibit, or website categories. Your process paper must answer the following questions:

1. How did you choose your topic and how does it relate to the annual theme?

2. How did you conduct your research?

3. How did you create your project?

4. What is your historical argument?

5. In what ways is your topic significant in history?
