A More Perfect Union: A Semiquincentennial Cooperative Agreement

A three-year cooperative agreement that would extend and expand NEH’s partnership with National History Day, in response to NEH’s A More Perfect Union initiative.

With the National Endowment for the Humanities, NHD proposes a three-year cooperative agreement for educational programming that will inspire student learning by engaging students and their teachers with historical scholarship in the pursuit of civic engagement and responsibility. Programs and activities will focus on the 250th anniversary of the American Revolution and the founding of a new nation based on a constitutional democracy. As well, NHD programs and content will examine the ways in which our founding ideals have been applied, struggled over, and met from our founding to yesterday’s headlines. The agreement center on NEH’s new agency-wide initiative, “A More Perfect Union: NEH Special Initiative Advancing Civic Education and Commemorating the Nation’s 250th Anniversary.”
