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.

- special WWI editions of THC's Medallion magazine commemorating the centennials of America's entry into the war and Armistice Day
- educational materials and the chance to win a grand prize
