History Fair: An Investment in Your Students' Education

The nationally-recognized Chicago Metro History Education Center is a not-for-profit, independent organization established in 1977. Schools that participate in the Chicago Metro History Fair are asked to join the History Fair Partners Program for an annual fee which contributes to the overall cost of providing History Fair services to the school's students and teachers. The majority of History Fair schools include the HF Partners fee in their School Improvement Plan and annual school budget, but in same cases schools may need to secure support from community sponsors, local businesses, parents, or donor websites.

The $475 History Fair Partner fee provides the following opportunities for partners

  • Free school visit (the one-time school visit includes either sessions with students (intro or coaching) or a 1.5 hour workshop with History Fair teachers, materials included)
  • Free registration for students for all competitions except NHD
  • Free or at-cost registration for teachers at professional development workshops and invitations to all History Fair-sponsored events
  • Free or at-cost educational materials for History Fair teachers and students
  • Free coaching sessions where students can receive feedback on their projects from History Fair staff and trained volunteers
  • Phone and email consultation for students and teachers
  • Opportunity to participate in special grant programs
  • Framed Certificate of Partnership

Schools participating in the History Fair for the first time will be charged an introductory rate of $200.

Schools in exceptional circumstances may apply for a one-time fee waiver or reduced-fee waiver. Please complete and return application.
