Eden Carnes

Junior Historian Award

14-year-old Eden Carnes believes the best way to instill a love for history in students is to start at a young age, especially in preschool and kindergarten. Challenged to transform the perspective of history as a “dusty, boring” subject, Eden has designed a course for children, ages 3 to 6 years, incorporating songs with hand motions to assist students with remembering facts and curriculum-correlated art projects.
