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.
