History Fair 2021 Main
About the Academy's History Fair
At the Academy of American Studies we are proud to present the 6th annual History Day Fair. The concept of our fair is modeled after the National History Day competition. In fact, some entries moved onto the city-wide competition in March and won. Six of the projects are moving on to the state wide competition. Students had the opportunity to complete the project individually or as a group with the exception of research papers that can only be done by an individual. There were five possible categories that students could choose as the option for their project. Those categories are websites, documentaries, podcasts, virtual exhibits and research papers. This year the theme in which the projects had to relate to was “Communication in History: The Key to Understanding”. This project involves students from across grades 9-11 and we are particularly proud this year of all their hard work because it was done remotely. We are happy that this year we could maintain this important tradition at Academy and celebrate the accomplishments of our students.
