A tour of the exhibition, "Key Ingredients," training in the"My United States" literacy curriculum and a new program of civic reflection discussion groups.

Humanities Washington (HW) will use its WTP 07 grant to further fund and expand three existing programs and provide funding for one new program. WTP funding will be applied to a new HW program by funding 30 civic reflection groups, reaching an estimated 500 people. In addition, WTP funds will be used to cover tuition and curriculum costs for 20 My United States participants, enable the MoMS exhibit Key Ingredients to travel to 10 rural communities, and provide funding for our re-grants program.
