Exhibit Boards @ the History Center

Tuesday, February 10th, 2009

Parents, as many of you are experiencing your students are well on their way to creating the final product for History Day in Minnesota. I have had many calls in the past couple of weeks asking if we have any of those famous poster boards that you can normally find at craft stores.  And the answer is YES!!!

This is a popular time of the year for students to be completing projects for science fair and other academic competitions so many of the stores are sold out of these background boards. But here at the History Center we have some great boards that teachers through out the state order to help push their students to the next level.

Unlike the typical science fair boards, these exhibit boards have proportional panel and more height. This creates a more balanced display of images, sources and text. The double-thick, corrugated boards are 48 inches tall and 72 inches wide. When displaye there are 23.5 inch wide side panels and a 25 inch wide center panel. We are also offering a title panel this year to complete the exhibit.

If you are interested in purchasing an exhibit board please contact me at (651)-259-3426. The cost of the board is $7.00 and the title panel is $2.00. Unfortunately in smaller quantities we can not ship the boards so they will have to be picked up here at the History Center in St. Paul.
