Support History Fair-- Donate to the Chicago Metro History Education Center
Every year thousands of elementary and high school students--representing more than 100 Chicago-area schools--participate in the Chicago Metro History Fair. History Fair provides a rigorous and valuable learning experience for students. Through their work to complete historical research projects on topics related to Chicago history, students develop research and thinking skills that prepare them for college, careers, and civic life.
The Chicago Metro History Education Center is funded through grants, individual and corporate contributions, and school fees, but we seek alternate funding sources. Supporters can help make a difference through direct donations and now, through their every day Internet use.
