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!
