Win certificates and cash for research work by competing for a New York State (NYS) Archives Student Research Award. Awards are given every year to students or groups of students (even whole classes) grades 4-12 who write, create, design or perform a well-researched work on New York. That's right, you get to choose how you present the information. More information and award guidelines are at http://www.archives.nysed.gov/a/grants/grants_student_sraguidelines.shtml.
