  • All competing students must still submit the Student Authorization form. Exhibit, documentary, and performance students may bring to the event (or, for papers and websites, mailed to the History Fair office). The form is available in the Download Center, Dates & Deadlines, or there is a link within the registration system from which it can be downloaded.


Carefully read the instructions before registering to insure to a pleasant and efficient registration experience.


Senior Division (Grades 9-12)

  • 10 research papers
  • 10 exhibits
  • 10 performances or documentaries
  • 8 websites (if certified to compete).

Junior Division (Grades 6-8)

Schools with under 140 projects completed in grades 6-8:

  • 4 research papers
  • 4 exhibits
  • 2 performances or documentaries
  • 4 websites (if certified to compete).

If more entries are wanted for performances or documentaries, a school may “trade” exhibit slots (for example, a school could send 2 exhibits, 3 documentaries, 1 performance).  Schools may not fill unused paper, website, or documentary/performance slots with additional exhibits.

Schools with over 90 projects completed in grades 6-8 may add one entry per every 50 projects. For example, 140 projects = one additional entry in any category; 190 projects = two additional entries, etc.


Students that are home-schooled or are at a school that does not offer History Fair may still enter the competition.  Independent History Fair Scholars that complete the application and submit entry fee are eligible for coaching and prize consideration as well.  The "Intent" will generate a registration form for the actual competition.

Download the Independent Scholar Form as a Word or PDF document.
