Several Central Texas organizations present special awards to projects they judge on the basis of their own criteria for topic, category, and quality.
In recent years, special awards have been given to projects on such general topic areas as America in the colonial era, African-American history, Native American history, legal history, and Texas history, among others, as well as for projects based on oral history interviews.
Students who wish to be considered for special awards will be able to nominate their own projects during the online registration process.
In the special awards section of the online registration Web site, each special award will be described, with eligibility criteria specified. Students may review the eligibility criteria and select up to three special awards for which they believe their project qualifies.
The HOTRHF Special Awards Committee will review student nominations to ensure eligibility. Special awards sponsors will receive a list of nominated projects to judge and will select winners based on their award criteria.
HOTRHF NOTE: Updates for this page will be completed by the open of registration December 1st.
