Manatee County is looking for history-lovers to dive in and help judge this year’s Manatee County History Fair.
The fair is part of a nationwide contest designed to encourage a love of history. Hundreds of students in sixth through 12th grades will be using newspapers, diaries, photographs and other resources to present a topic using this year’s theme, “Debate and Diplomacy in History: Success, Failures, Consequence."
The Manatee County Clerk of the Circuit Court’s Historical Resources Department and the Manatee County Historical Commission, fair sponsors, will offer training for judges from noon to 1 p.m., or 6-7 p.m., Oct. 19, at the Manatee Village Historical Park, 1404 Manatee Ave. E., Bradenton. Other arrangements will be made for individuals who cannot make the training workshops.
No prior experience is necessary.
