Open today 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

Congratulations, Students!

We are proud of all the students who presented at the regional competitions. Your work showed us that you could build knowledge from your own research, analyze and synthesize sources, and develop your own arguments which you communicated to the public. You made history!

Congratulations to the senior division students advancing to the next level of completion. The Metro Finals will be held on April 12 at the Chicago History Museum. Coaching requests for advancing projects are welcomed.
