100 Years / 100 Schools Initiative - Veterans Day 2018

Materials from the World War I Centennial

November 11, 2018, marked the 100th anniversary of the great armistice that silenced the guns of World War I.

To honor that historic event, the Texas World War I Centennial Commemoration Association (TXWWICCA), Texas State Historical Association (TSHA), and the Texas Historical Commission (THC) are asking educators to tell us about the World War I programming they incorporated into their school's Veterans Day events.

The first one hundred schools to share details and a photograph of their event with us will receive a 100 Years/100 Schools WWI Centennial Packet consisting of:

  • a formal participation certificate endorsed by state and national organizations
  • an official state of Texas WWI centennial commemorative coin
  • a special WWI edition of THC's Medallion magazine
  • educational materials and the chance to win a grand prize

Information about how to upload your information will be shared soon, so please check back!
