Entry Description
150 (or more) Ways to Get Involved with the
Children’s Initiative

• Have your business sponsor a project with a local school.  Whether fourth grade field trip to the Statehouse this year, a school play on Indiana history, or a bison for the “bison-tennial” that local art students design and decorate, your company can be part of the excitement, and leave a lasting legacy for the youth you work with.

• Be part of a reading project.  It might be reading Indiana stories to middle schoolers, donating a book by an Indiana author to a local library, or sharing stories of Clifford the Big Red Dog (he’s from Kokomo, you know). Reading is fundamental to excelling in school, and it is fun and easy.

• Volunteer at a State Park.  We are celebrating 100 years of our state park system with more than 100 Legacy Projects.  You can be part of a real learning experience for children, and get some fresh air at the same time.

• Tell Stories.  Share stories about your family history with a child, grandchild, niece or nephew.  Talk about family foods, travels, service, occupations and activities. Whether they are funny, interesting, or serious, let the next generation be keepers of great family stories.

• Go All-IN.  Participate in Indiana Humanities’ great project to track your family’s Indiana history and experience the many cultures and traditions that make Indiana the great state it is.  Find All-IN at />
• Work with a Youth-Serving Agency.  Easy to find, easy to do, very, very needed.

• Find a Bicentennial Legacy Project working with children and be part of it.  Go to our website,  Find the Legacy Projects page and search the pull-down menu for youth and education projects.  There are more than 150 there.  Find one close and participate.  Or find one you love and replicate it locally.

• Create your own Legacy Project.  The guidelines are simple, it costs nothing, and it can create the best memories you will have of 2016.  After you see the great ideas on our website, make your own project a reality!
