The Hampshire Archives Trust is to launch a new History competition for secondary and sixth form students in Hampshire at the start of the new academic year in September. Secondary schools and sixth forms throughout the county will be invited to enter the competition, with the winning entries being awarded trophies and significant cash prizes in the summer.
There will be group and individual categories for students in Years 7-9, the GCSE years, and sixth form. Entries will be welcomed in a variety of forms: essays, videos, blogs, posters, etc. Students will need to demonstrate the use of archives in both their research and final project. Projects can be on any aspect of Hampshire history: e.g. the students’ school, their town or village, their family, or a particular historic event.
More information will be published in the build-up to and at the time of the competition’s launch in September. In the meantime, if teachers or students have questions or would like more information, please email Dr Alistair Dougall:
