Chicago Metro History Fair 2016 Summary Statement Form

Download the Word version to your own computer and then write and edit in the form (recommended).  Or download and print the PDF then type or print very neatly.  Bring TWO copies of the Summary Statement along with the Annotated Bibliography to the contests--History Fair judges will keep one set.

The Summary Statement is required for all project categories, along with the annotated bibliography.  It has been updated to reflect NEW rules for 2016.

Website students must POST the Summary Statement on their site along with the Annotated Bibliography.

Put your best foot forward by producing a superior Summary Statement Form.  Take a look at our samples.

The Summary Statement Form is the History Fair judges' first look at the student project.  The judges see the thesis, main ideas, and student explanation to how the theme is integrated into the project.  The other questions allow the judges to see the "student historian at work."  In the sample below, note how high school student Carl Arkebauer demonstrates his deep thinking about the thesis and theme.
