Texas Historical Records Advisory Board
Best Use of Texas Archival Collections Special Award
 

About

Established in 2016, the purpose of the Texas Historical Records Advisory Board's Best Use of Texas Archival Collections award is to encourage the use of historical records as primary sources created in Texas or held in a Texas repository in support of National History Day in Texas.  The awards are intended to recognize junior and senior division projects that utilize archival collections in a substantive way. 

National History Day and the Society of American Archivists collaborated on an Archives Toolkit for the student, teacher, archivist, or researcher to provide information on National History Day and how archives can be used in history day projects. Visit National History Day and Archives.
