IMLS Encourages Participation in America: The Story of Us Contests
Washington, DC—The Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS),
together with HISTORY™ and the President’s Committee on the Arts and the
Humanities, invites libraries and students across the United States to
flex their creative muscles and share their passion for American history
by participating in HISTORY™’s America: The Story of Us contests.  For
libraries, the contest entails creating a special exhibit or media
project about American history that will strengthen their communities’
interest in American history.  Students are asked to create a short
video based on any topic related to American history and are encouraged
to use the resources of local libraries, historical societies, and
archives for information on their own local history or on the American
history topic that interests them most.
“These contests are exciting opportunities to promote learning about
American history and explore our nation’s diverse heritage,” said Marsha
Semmel, Acting Director of IMLS. “We are delighted that HISTORY™ is
reaching out to the nation's libraries to encourage a community dialogue
about America's past.”
