ANNUAL HISTORY FAIR

2021 History Fair

Save the Date!  The 2021 Academy of American Studies Virtual History Fair is tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, March 10th.  This year's theme is Communication in History: The Key to Understanding

 

We will be taking the History Fair online this year due to the circumstances.  We are excited to continue the tradition with the 6th Annual History Fair.  This year's theme is Communication in History: The Key to Understanding and what better way to honor the theme then by taking it online.  We are hoping that this year we will have more students and their families "Attend" the History Fair since it is online.The 1st place winners in each category will be getting a $25.00 Gift Card thanks to our sponsor Gilder Lehrman.  

Check out the National History Day Website for more information.
