National History Day





National History Day (NHD) announces the 100 Leaders in World History program, sponsored by Kenneth E. Behring. The 100 Leaders in World History program is designed to help students and the public better understand leadership by reviewing the leadership qualities and legacies of great leaders from the past.


For this project, NHD partnered with George Mason University’s Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media to bring together a leading panel of historians, teachers, and students, tasked with identifying 100 world leaders in history who left a lasting legacy. The program includes a gallery of 100 significant leaders in world history, 100 days in which the public can vote on the leaders by rating them on five dimensions of leadership, and a set of classroom resources to help educators engage young people in a study of leadership and legacy in history.
