Announcing a Special WWI award

As part of the centennial recognition of World War I, the Utah WWI Commission is sponsoring cash prizes for outstanding History Day projects relating to the Great War.  Winners will be selected at Utah's ten regional History Day competitions held in February-March, as well as at the state contest held in April.   
Projects must relate directly to World War I and may range from the war in Europe to its impacts on the home front, such as rationing, mining, industry, Liberty Bond drives, German POWs, conscientious objectors, politics, etc. Winning projects will demonstrate research, clarity, thought, and some originality.  Relevant projects from all categories (documentary, paper, website, exhibit, and performance) will be considered.
