Important Dates for Coordinators for the 2019 WV State Social Studies Fair:

Last date to hold a county fair:  TBD

Last date for county fair coordinators to register projects for a regional fair:   TBA

Project numbers posted to State Social Studies Fair website no later than:  TBA


The West Virginia State Social Studies Fair employs a web-based electronic registration system.  Here's how the process works:

1.  After a school fair is held, winning projects are registered for county fairs using whatever method the county chooses to employ.

2.  Following the county fair, COUNTY FAIR COORDINATORS must utilize the West Virginia State Social Studies Fair Online Registration System to register winning county projects for regional fairs.

3.  The WVDE will provide each RESA coordinator with an Access database containing data for all projects competing in the RESA fair.

4.  After a RESA fair is held, REGIONAL FAIR COORDINATORS will export the appropriate data from their Access databases and submit it via email to the WVDE.
