History Club Programs and Events
The Indiana Junior Historical Society’s history clubs participate in exclusive members-only programs and events throughout the school year. Whether visiting an Indiana historic site or producing a podcast about the history of their town, club members experience history in a fun and engaging way.
The Indiana Junior Historical Society awards two $500 scholarships to graduating seniors and The Society of Indiana Pioneers awards a $300 club scholarship each year. The deadline to apply is April 1, 2013.
The Indiana Junior Historical Society awarded two $500 scholarships in 2012 to Switzerland County Junior Historical Society members, Ashley Kirtman and Taryn Parr. Congratulations ladies!
