This year is going to bring changes to the state social studies fair. This year high school students only have the option in competing in the National History Day portion of the competition. With it being the first year of rolling out History Day at the local level it will be a big change for local and RESA competitions. To accommodate this change we are only asking that schools, counties, and RESAs hold local competitions for the Exhibit portion of National History Day. http://www.wvssfair.com/
If you have students who are interested in the other portion of National History Day such as a performance or documentary please let me know and we may make arrangements for them at the state fair. Elementary and Middle School students will compete in the traditional social studies fair portion of the competition. National History Day does not have an elementary competition but it does have a middle school competition. If you have middle school students who are interested in National History Day this year please contact me. The New Score cards for both History Day and the Social Studies Fair are posted on the site above.
Remember all dates and up to date information is posted on the Social Studies Website at: http://wvde.state.wv.us/socialstudies/
