Thank you for your interest and participation in the EVHS Bartow History Scholar Program. EVHS is pleased to sponsor this voluntary program and partner with our local schools in an effort to preserve Bartow history.

Bartow History Scholar Program Receives Award

The Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation recognized the BHS program for Excellence in Historic Preservation.

Additionally, in 2021 the Bartow Farm Bureau recognized the Bartow History Scholar Program and Quiz Bowl for its contribution to include historic Bartow agriculture and farming in the Quiz Bowl content.

Students and families are encouraged to periodically review historical facts about Bartow County contained on the Tutorial Study Guide page and across the EVHS web site. Participating schools/teachers will draw questions from these factoids and provide optional questions on selected history tests for bonus credit. These questions are designed for bonus credit only and will not penalize the student if they are answered incorrectly.

Intern or volunteer with the Etowah Valley Historical Society

EVHS also welcomes volunteers and student interns from local schools and area colleges or universities. Students may serve as a volunteer in the office or take advantage of exciting internships to earn credit with your school or college. Opportunities include: Office coverage, Library maintenance, Project research, Digital maps, Photography, Event set up, Membership lists, Newsletter, Articles, Archives and more. All internships must be pre-approved with your school or college.
