JUNIOR DIVISION EVENTS (Grades 6-8)
Metro Junior History Fair (Grades 6-8)
Schools with under 140 projects completed in grades 6-8:
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.
