Hands On History: Student Research Papers

Students Teach the Community About Clallam County History

Hands on History is a program of the North Olympic History Center begun in  2017. Students in grades 6 through 12 research a submit of Clallam County history, submit a written paper, prepare a visual display about their subject, and make a public presentation. Students become the teachers of our county's history!

Scholarships are awarded for the best work in junior and senior categories each year. Students consistently tell us that they enjoy the program for their own personal interest and growth through the experience.

We are extremely proud of these young people for their hard work and for their interest in keeping local history alive!
