Students: Campaign for a Leader

100 leaders website

Which leader will win the race in 2015?

Great leaders must inspire followers! As part of the 100 Leaders in World History project, National History Day (NHD) is challenging middle and high school students to create inspiring campaign posters that encourage others to vote for the leader they think should be at the top of the list.

Rules:

  • Students can create their own original poster, Instagram a photo of the poster, and submit the picture of their campaign poster to NHD on Twitter (@NationalHistory) #NHD100Leaders.
  • Students must Instagram a photo of the poster, and tweet it to NHD before the February 2, 2015 deadline.
  • Poster content must be original and appropriate for all audiences.
  • Each poster must include 100leaders.org somewhere in the content.

Voting runs from November 3, 2014 – February 11, 2015.

Select posters will be featured throughout the 100 Leaders in World History project both on the www.100leaders.org website and included in NHD teacher and student resources.

For ideas and examples of campaign posters visit: http://www.loc.gov/publish/general/presidential-posters-gallery/index.html.

Thank you to Kenneth E. Behring for sponsoring the 100 Leaders in World History project.
