To support Marylanders' involvement in America's history and culture through Maryland History Day for middle and high schoolers; Chautauqua programs about democracy; 24 Speakers Bureau presentations that will reach approximately 1,200 people; a new facilitated discussion program, Practicing Democracy; and grants to support programming about critical community issues as well as historical and cultural topics.

The Maryland Humanities Council will use the 2010 We the People funding to support five program areas that are effective in engaging diverse audiences: Maryland History Day, Chautauqua, Speakers Bureau, Practicing Democracy, and the Grant program. Each of these program areas offers Marylanders the opportunity to personally explore the rich diversity of America's history and culture and become more civically engaged.
