Conner Museum has sponsored the Coastal Bend Regional History Fair, providing students the opportunity to develop their knowledge of History, critical thinking skills, analytical reading, writing, public presentation, media design, and performance skills through creative and original papers, performances, documentaries, websites, or exhibits. The competition is open to all students from 6th through 12th grades. Students from throughout the Coastal Bend region are invited to participate in the event. The Coastal Bend Regional History Fair is one of twenty-two regional history fairs in Texas; finalists continue to Texas History Day competition in Austin and the National History Day competition in Washington, D.C. All levels of competition follow the guidelines of the National History Day program. Coastal Bend Regional History Fair 2016 will be held on Saturday, February 13.
