Chicago Metro History Fair Introduces a New Category-- Websites!
The website category is open only to schools whose teachers have taken the CMHEC History Fair websites training.Teachers may contact CMHEC for more details, or go to the Certification page now. Since hands-on workshops have concluded, teachers that want to participate in the category this year will need to take the online website training course and certificate program. Teachers must be certified by January 8, 2012. Upon receiving certification, teachers may allow students to build websites that can be entered into the History Fair competitions. Teachers and students will gain further access to the website rules and guidelines, and the school's name will appear on a list of certified schools.
Note to home-schooled students or students that do not attend a school that participates in the History Fair and plan to participate as an "independent:" training and certification is required. Please complete the Independent Scholar Form and CMHEC will send you the link for training.
