The Maryland Humanities Council will use the 2005 "We the People" grant in two major ways. First, these funds will support projects that are part of the Council's 2005-2006 special initiative, "The Changing Faces of Democracy." These projects include our 2005 Chautauqua, a special regrant opportunity, reading/discussion series, and a magazine issue. Second, these funds will support the Maryland History Day program and Speakers Bureau presentations. Each of these activities is designed to strengthen the teaching, study, and understanding of American history and culture in Maryland.
