Welcome to Bigfork High School Social Studies Department

Junior Class National History Day Fair

Bigfork high school juniors were hosting a local National History Day Fair on May 22nd. This year’s theme, “Turning Points in History” invited students to consider questions of time and place, cause and effect, change over time, impact, and significance. Students competed in the categories of Exhibit, Website, Historical Paper, and Documentary. 

The project was a collaborative piece between the English and Social Studies/History Departments and their pieces were judged by local judges and on display for fellow students and the community.


Students are required by the state of Montana to take three years of Social Studies.
