More than 200 students compete in Escambia County History Fair
ESCAMBIA COUNTY, Fla. (WEAR) —
More than 200 Escambia County students put their history projects to the test Saturday.
It was the annual History Fair competition.
The projects were judged in a variety of categories including visual and oral presentation and the depth of the research.
The middle and high school students were challenged to come up with history projects in the theme of triumph and tragedy.
There were more than 53 entries from 24 schools on display.
Two of the winners from last year’s competition were selected to judge this year’s projects.
“It's been very different because we've always been on the other side being questioned. Now we're giving the questions, so I know what the students are feeling so I'm not trying to pressure them at all. I’m just trying to get good answers and give really good questions,” said judge Bryce Cox.
This year’s winners will be announced Tuesday night. Metals and a variety of prizes will be handed out.
The winners from this competition will advance to the state competition held in Tallahassee in May.
