Maryland History Day, planning of the new program initiative "Civic Health," the 2004 Chautauqua program "The American Environment: Voices and Choices," and Speakers Bureau presentations on American history and culture.

The Maryland Humanities Council will use "We the People" funding in three major program areas. The first area, "Humanities LIVE! in Maryland," uses established Council programs to explore significant themes in American history, culture, and civic affairs. The second area of emphasis employs a revised and expanded website to reach more Marylanders. The third program area introduces a new initiative, "Civic Health," that employs Humanities programming to connect civic life and public health, engaging the public in these important conversations.
