Outstanding Young Historian Award Nomination

Calling All Teachers!

Did you know Historic Cabarrus Association awards Outstanding Young Historians?

Each May we honor a Middle or High School student attending a Cabarrus County school for their dedication to the study of the history of Cabarrus County, the State of North Carolina, and/or the United States.

Our inaugural recipient, Miss Dorothy McGee put together a pamphlet and program on the historic portraits on display in the 1876 Historic Cabarrus County Courthouse, partnering with The Honorable Judge Clarence Horton for her project. Miss Maizie Croom worked in the HCA Archives as part of her 8th grade IB project, helping sort and preserve letters written and received by a Concord native in 1904.

One of your students could be next! Please check out the link below to see our Nomination Form and to learn more about nominating your outstanding young historian.


Students are honored and presented with a Certificate of their achievement at our Annual Meeting each May. They are also honored with their name on our Award Plaque, displayed at the Concord Museum.
