|Project Name||National History Competition for School Students from 8th to 12th classes|

The main goal of the project is students through independent historical research to find undiscovered or little-known facts and thus to make their own interpretation of the local history. The competition goes beyond the standard type competitions, because it also includes an educational program for students and teachers introducing the technology of working with a research project based on the multi-perspective approach as a new qualitative analysis of the historical resources. Project work begins to enter gradually in the modern education system in Bulgarian schools. Suggested competition topics always are within the field of everyday history which is almost missing or hardly represented in the school text books.
