All History Day papers, regardless of the level the competition they have reached, are also eligible to compete in the Junior Historians of Texas Writing Contest and the additional special Writing Awards available in that program. The guidelines are the same, students just need to become an At-Large Member if they aren't already part of an organized Chapter.
