Wednesday, October 11, 2017 - 4:00pm to 4:30pm
Sponsored by the Texas World War I Centennial Commemoration Association, the Texas State Historical Association, and the Texas Historical Commission.
The Texas Historical Commission (THC), Texas State Historical Association (TSHA), and Texas World War I Centennial Commemoration Association have partnered to champion Texas’ contributions to the Great War in schools this Veterans Day. To spearhead this effort, the Texas World War I Centennial Commemoration Association has launched the “100 Years/100 Schools” initiative—a campaign designed to equip 100 schools to tell the 100-year-old stories of Texas and the Great War using a comprehensive one-day curriculum that includes videos, images, instructional materials, and other educational resources.
Use the provided curriculum to participate in the “100 Years/100 Schools” initiative.
Join the collaboration call on Wednesday, October 11 at 4 p.m.
The first 100 schools to submit a picture and completion form to the TSHA will receive entry in a raffle and a resource packet with contributions from partner organizations including a formal participation certificate, poppy seeds, three newly-minted Official State of Texas World War I Centennial state coins, a copy of the THC’s Medallion: World War I Special Edition, the THC’s highly anticipated World War I travel guide: Texas and the Great War, and other World War I resources.
April 6, 2017 marked the official start of the United States’ WWI Centennial period, which will run through June 2019.
