Students Showcase Projects at Bay District School’s History Fair

News

Hundreds of students have worked hard on history projects since the beginning of the year and on Thursday, they finally showed them off. It was Bay District School’s annual history fair at Gulf Coast State College. 

About 282 students participated this year’s fair from 12 different Bay District Schools. There were five different categories students could choose from: exhibit board, live performance, documentaries, websites and historical papers. The projects were judged by community leaders, educators and members of the historic society.

“Once they’ve gotten started on it they have enjoyed what they were doing, and they had leeway to choose topics that are interesting to them, so of course with history you can pick anything that has ever happened. It’s in the hands of the judges now but we will see how we do!” said Arnold High School history teacher Wes Carlisle.

The first and second place winners in each category will advance to state which will be held in Tallahassee in May.
