Here is a great opportunity for our students to help preserve NY State History.
The New York State Archives announces its twenty-second annual Student Research Awards program to promote and recognize excellence in student research. The main purpose of the awards program is to encourage students to explore the wealth of historical records in New York State. A secondary purpose is to increase cooperation between schools and organizations that administer historical records useful for education.
The Student Research Awards program is a statewide competition open to all New York State students in grades 4-12. A total of three awards will be given; one each for students in
- Grades 4-5
- Grades 6-8
- Grades 9-12
Each award consists of a framed certificate and a cash prize. Certificates of Merit will also be awarded to entries other than the winners that show a heavy reliance on historical records to support research and include an annotated bibliography.
Timetable – Entries must be postmarked no later than July 1, 2012.
