Each year, the UIC University Library offers local area high school students the University of Illinois at Chicago Richard J. Daley Special Collections Research Award as part of the Chicago Metro History Fair. The award is generously funded by the Richard J. Daley Collection Committee. A $300 prize is given to the high school student who best uses the Library’s Special Collections and University Archives resources, either at the Richard J. Daley Library or the Library of the Health Sciences-Chicago. This year’s topic for the History Fair was Conflict and Compromise in History.

Congratulations to the 2017-2018 winner!
