Models and posters of local historic landmarks, people, and events created by 75 fourth-grade students are showcased in the 30th annual Sioux City History Projects exhibit at the Sioux City Public Museum. View a video of the History Projects here or a PDF of the projects here.

After studying local history, 746 students from 13 participating schools created projects on Sioux City’s past and present. Projects displayed in the Museum have been evaluated according to their uniqueness, quality and how they relate to Sioux City history. Unique creations this year include the Floyd Bottoms Flood, the Thorpe Clock, Tonwantonga, Security National Bank, and the first McDonalds in Sioux City.

The exhibit will be on display through May 8 when students will be honored at a limited-capacity awards ceremony. For the first time this year, the public is invited to vote for their favorite history project in the new Visitors’ Choice Award category. Ballots are available at the Museum front desk.

The participating elementary schools include Bryant Elementary, Holy Cross School, Irving Elementary, Virtual Learner/Leeds Elementary, Liberty Elementary, Loess Hills Elementary, Virtual Learner/Loess Hills Elementary, Morningside Elementary, Perry Creek Elementary, Riverside Elementary, Spalding Park Elementary, St. Paul Lutheran School, Sunnyside Elementary, and Unity Elementary.
