BARTOW HISTORY SCHOLARS PROGRAM
Etowah Valley Historical Society
Cartersville, Bartow County

When Etowah Valley Historical Society's website needed updating in 2012, its board chose to expand the site to create an in-depth public resource for the county's history. In conjunction with this historical resource, a program was developed that encouraged 8th grade history teachers to offer extra credit to students who used the website to study local history in addition to their set curriculum. During the pilot 2013-14 school year, 850 students from five middle schools participated in the program and 54 top achievers were recognized as Bartow History Scholars. The Society has established a middle school advisory board for the program and plans to expand with more activities including an annual History Quiz Bowl.
