School Recognition Program

Kids!  Your school can become an official Lincoln Bicentennial School! 

Encourage your teachers to apply today!  

  • Plant a tree or Bicentennial Garden.
  • Spend a class period talking about how Lincoln can be a model for good citizenship.
  • Talk about what Lincoln meant by “unfinished work” in his Gettysburg Address.

Your school’s Bicentennial celebration may occur anytime during the 2008-2009 school year. 

Participating schools receive a certificate from the Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial Commission to display proudly.  The deadline to sign up for the Lincoln Legacy School Recognition Program is August 21, 2009!
