Education for Youth
The Tulare County Historical Society (TCHS) strongly encourages the youth of Tulare County to take an interest in history—especially local history. We believe the study of history is not only necessary and worthwhile to be good citizens, but we also believe it can be fun.
One way for youth to be involved in history is through National History Day—Tulare County, administered by the Tulare County Office of Education (TCOE). TCHS is an annual sponsor for the event, providing financial scholarships to students and judges for the competition.
After lunch the winners were announced and some were featured. The keynote speaker, Ed Boersma, told of his family’s experience hiding Jews during World War II in Holland.
The Department of Education always appreciates representatives of our Society being in attendance -- and those who attend are the real winners!
