Anne R. Worrell Middle School Student Award
The Virginia Historical Society will be awarding a $250 cash prize to a middle school student who demonstrates distinction in historical research and scholarship. The award will be given to a student who completes a paper or classroom project that is creative, uses original primary source materials, and demonstrates a knowledge and understanding of some facet of American history. To be eligible for the award, a student’s name must be submitted by a history or social studies teacher. A teacher may nominate more than one student.
The winner will be selected by the staff of the Virginia Historical Society based on the criteria listed above. All materials must be received by May 31, 2013. Decisions are final and within the discretion of the VHS.
How to nominate a student
If you have a student who has done an exceptional paper or project, please submit the nomination form along with any other information that will help us evaluate the project, such as videos, newspaper articles, photographs, or web addresses. Unfortunately, these materials cannot be returned. Group projects will not be considered.
