Region VIII Social Studies Fair
The Region VIII Social Studies Fair is open to all Tangipahoa, Livingston, Washington,
St. Tammany, and Helena Parish schools grades 4th-12th. The regional fair is usually
held in mid March at the University Center onSoutheastern Louisiana University's campus.
If you have never entered projects or it has been a long time, I will be happy to
started on the right track. The Region VIII Social Studies Fair website has very useful information such as A Guide to Projects (located under State Fair information).
How to choose projects at the local level:
You can either hold a local fair within your classroom or school or have a committee of teachers choose which projects go to the Regional Fair.
The benefits for students participating in the Regional Fair are numerous. Not only can they learn about history, geography, political science, anthropology, economics, or sociology, they can learn valuable communication and research skills.
