Last Updated on Jan 13, 2017 at 9:17am

Southern Garrett High School students enrolled in Ms. Rhonda Tasker’s world history classes competed in a Social Studies Fair recently conducted at the school. Participants completed a cultural project on a country or a National History Day project.  Both projects required extensive research of various standards in social studies. The criteria for the country project included a presentation board, traditional food and music, a constructed model, and a technology component.  The National History Day projects were centered around the theme “Taking a Stand in History”. The Social Studies fair was held in the school’s media center where students presented their projects to various judges, social studies teachers, and classmates.  Winners are pictured below with their projects.
