2024 Theme Information


This project was a collaboration between The South Dakota Agricultural Heritage Museum and National History Day in South Dakota. The museum would also like to add an additional thank you to South Dakota State University History majors Paige Barthel, Clara Burns, and Lauren Pierce. They served as National History Day in South Dakota student interns, researching and compiling resources for this project.
