Are you a teacher, librarian or student researching topics for the Florida History Fair? Find hundreds of historical photographs, documents, film and audio recordings related to this year’s theme.
Resources for the 2012-13 Florida History Fair links to primary and secondary source documents available online from the State Library and Archives of Florida. Primary resources from other institutions and key secondary resources are also identified in a newly expanded section.
Students involved in the History Fair become passionate about their research and interpreting history.
“Students have always told us how much they loved their National History Day experience and how it has changed their life, both in their academics and their careers. History not only teaches students about the stories of our past, but is vital to creating a generation of young people who can apply these lessons to the future.” – Cokie Roberts
I hope these resources will help you share the excitement of discovering history.
[UPDATE: Known since its inception in 1980 as the “Florida History Fair,” the program name is changing to “Florida History Day” (FHD) in keeping with the style of other National History Day (NHD) affiliates.]
