The public is invited to join the students and faculty of the History Department for Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School’s annual History Fair.
Students in grades 10 and 11 have created projects relating to “Revolution, Reaction and Reform in History” through the National History Day program. The fair will take place at the high school of Thursday, Dec. 8 from 4-7 p.m.
Displays will be open for viewing in the cafeteria, and websites will be displayed in the library. Performances and documentaries will be presented throughout the evening in classrooms and the auditorium.
A sample of the topics among the 59 projects this year includes: Irish Rebellion, Gandhi’s Peaceful Revolution, Cuban Revolution, Prohibition, Steve Jobs, Singing Revolution in Estonia, Eva Peron, New Deal, Boxer Rebellion and Walt Disney.
Students will be judged on their projects, but instead of a score they will receive comments. The purpose of History Fair is for students to share what they have discovered while exploring different revolutions/reforms and their effects on history. In January, the department will select projects to advance to the district competition of National History Day.
Please join us for this exciting evening of extensively researched, creative history presentations.
