Indiana Bicentennial Celebration 2016

Legacy Projects Bicentennial Legacy Projects

Legacy Project

Indiana’s past and present are worth celebrating. Where we live and work, in communities all around Indiana, Hoosiers are encouraged to highlight the best of Indiana for our 2016 Bicentennial celebration.

There are abundant opportunities for local and regional Bicentennial celebrations, projects and programs to reflect upon 200 years of progress with genuine Hoosier pride and ingenuity.

To promote and support these community projects and programs, the Commission is accepting Applications for Endorsement [State Form 55624 (R/9-14)] — upon approval those projects will become official Indiana Bicentennial Legacy Projects.
