INDIVIDUAL & GROUP OPTIONS

Students may choose to work as an individual or part of a group. Groups are composed of 2-5 students and may compete in Documentary, Exhibit, Performance, and Website, but not in Historical Paper.

Groups should be formed at the beginning of the project so all students participate in the research and development phases. Group members may drop out of the project, but new members cannot be added.
