Help Teachers and Students Make History: Volunteer with the Chicago Metro History Fair
The Chicago Metro History Fair seeks volunteers to help with its annual program that encourages students in grades six through twelve to become historians and complete in-depth research projects on topics related to Chicago history. Participating students conduct research in libraries, archives, and museums, as well as on the internet, and produce mini-museum exhibits, performances, documentaries, websites, and research papers about their discoveries. In doing their projects, students make history come alive for themselves and their audiences.
There are many ways to support History Fair—and have a rewarding time while doing so! We invite you to join us by contributing your time to:
