|Judges and Students at Chicago Metro History Fair Awards Ceremony, 2004
The Chicago Metro History Education Center, founded in 1978, organizes an annual History Fair competition in which Chicago-area students in grades 6 through 12 develop their own history research projects using primary sources. The students produce papers, exhibits, multimedia presentations, or live performances to communicate their findings. In this photo, History Fair volunteer judge Priya Shimpi poses with Jeff Nelson and Bradley Thomas, students from Morgan Park High School, at the Chicago Metro History Fair awards ceremony, May 2004. Nelson and Thomas were finalists and won an award for their exhibit on the Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters.
