You probably know about Connecticut History Day, which annually engages over 4,000 middle- and high-school students in historical research and interpretation. Perhaps you've been a judge, or had students come to do research at your site. But there are more ways to be involved and help direct young researchers to your site and collections. Join us as we learn more about this year's History Day theme, and how generating topic ideas that relate to your museum and collections can generate more public interest in your historic site. We'll have with us Rebecca Taber, the head of Public Programs and Connecticut History Day at the Connecticut Democracy Center and Old State House; Joanie DiMartino, Museum Curator at the Prudence Crandall Museum; and Dante DiMartino-Hart, student and long-time History Day participant. In addition to hearing from our guests, we'll have an opportunity to break into small groups to brainstorm topic ideas for this year's theme.
