Through the generosity of the Heroes Hall Veterans Foundation, OC Fair & Event Center is proud to offer a limited number of bus scholarships through the “Hall Aboard!” program intended for field trips to Heroes Hall. Scholarships are designed for schools located within Orange County that may not otherwise have the means to support bus transportation for field trips.

“Visiting Heroes Hall was an invaluable experience for my students. Upon arriving we were given a welcome and overview of the Medal of Honor Courtyard. Students then freely explored a special exhibit dedicated to American Prisoners of War. The highlight of our visit was our one-on-one Q&A session with three former prisoners of war from WWII and Korea. Each of their experiences were powerful testimony to the reality and humanity of war. Students were also given a guided tour of the SAAAB Story, which highlighted local Orange County history. Overall, it was a powerful experience that gave students a combination of facts and real life experiences of war.”
