The Paul Barrett Memorial Awards are given out annually at the Chicago Metro History Fair and are named in memory of Paul Barrett, a former professor of history and chair of the Humanities Department at Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) who passed away in 2004. The Humanities Department contributes funds as an annual sponsor, and the awards have been named in recognition of Professor Barrett for the past three years.

This year's winners of the Paul Barrett Memorial Awards at the Chicago Metro History Fair were Caeley Harihara and Daniel Hayes. Harihara (Payton College Prep) won an award for her website "Designing History: Bauhaus Chicago." Harihara is pictured above at the Chicago Metro History Fair award ceremony this past April with Maryhelen Matijevic, a member of the executive committee of Chicago Metro History. Hayes (Mt. Carmel High School) won for his research paper "If We Can Do It, Then We Should: The Chicago Algebra Project as an Outcome of Chicago Education Reform—From Protest to Reform." Read more here
