Program 1

The Concord Review, Inc., was founded in March 1987 to recognize and to publish exemplary history essays by high school students in the English-speaking world. With the fifty-second Winter 2002), 682 research papers (average 5,000 words, with Turabian endnotes and bibliography) have been published from authors in forty-four states and thirty-three other countries. The Concord Review remains the only quarterly journal in the world to publish the academic research papers of secondary students. Essays may be on any historical topic, ancient or modern, domestic or foreign. Many of our authors have sent reprints of their papers with their college application materials, and they have gone on to Berkeley(6), Brown(20), Columbia(13), Cornell(10), Dartmouth(9), Harvard(71), Oxford(8), Pennsylvania(14), Princeton(41), Stanford(22), Yale(61), and a number of other fine institutions, including Amherst, Bowdoin, Bryn Mawr, Caltech, Cambridge, Chicago, McGill, MIT, Trinity, Wellesley, and Williams. We have sent such exemplary history essays to subscribers (students, teachers and librarians) in forty-two states and thirty-one other countries (Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, England, France, Greece, Holland, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kenya, Malaysia, Mexico, New Guinea, New Zealand, Paraguay, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Africa, Switzerland, Turkey, Venezuela and Wales). Schools in California, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Texas, Vermont and Virginia have class sets of the Review, and teachers are using these essays as examples of good historical writing. One girls' school in Monterey, California has 190 subscriptions for their history students. We have had more than 174,000 visitors to our website, at http://www.tcr.org, which has information on the National Writing Board, and 55 sample essays, including all of the Ralph Waldo Emerson Prize ($3,000) winners from the last eight years, and high school teachers and history students in the English-speaking world may learn more about us, find out how to subscribe, and download the form to send in with an essay (along with their check for $40 for the next four issues). This site has been mirrored on a server in Singapore since 1997 for the use of history teachers in Asia. Our email address is: fitzhugh@tcr.org.
