How To Bring the Maximum Number of Students


By coordinating students' choices of project categories, teachers can bring as many as seventy five students from one school for each division of the regional history fair. If the number of participating students is within the maximum limits for a school, a small classroom fair can be held to give students experience in having others look at their work, and all the projects can advance to HOTRHF. If there are more than the allowable number of projects in any category at the school level, a schoolwide fair should be held, with judging to select the top three project winners in each category to advance to HOTRHF.

If you have both junior (6-8 grades) and senior (9-12 grades) division students in your school you can bring the maximum number of students in each division. Students must declare their current grade level to be placed in the proper division. Misrepresentation of grade level is a serious infraction of the rules and can result in disqualification to compete.
