To commemorate our historic 200th anniversary, the Tuscaloosa Bicentennial Commission, in cooperation with the Tuscaloosa City Schools and area private and parochial schools, hosted a three-day history exposition showcasing the talents of students and engaging them in a deep study of Tuscaloosa’s rich heritage. Ideas for exhibits included historical events, food, fashion, decor, industry, inventions/technology, arts, music, education. Exhibits were eligible for judging in eight categories.

Each participating school was assigned an era of city history and were engaged in a year-long, collaborative, comprehensively cross-curricular study of that time.  Guided by their teachers, students researched, designed, constructed and presented an exhibit on their assigned era.  The project was designed to include components for archiving and sharing the extensive content students generated through their research.
