Alaska's March To Statehood:

an exploration of Alaskan statehood by research and study, a partnership with Alaska Public Radio to gather and broadcast personal narratives, and an interactive game to complement the Alaska History and Cultural Studies curriculum

Alaska celebrates its 50th Anniversary of Statehood July 7, 2008 through January 3, 2009. This program supports research and scholarship; builds a tool for improving Alaskan understanding of their history; and gives everyday Alaskans a chance to tell their personal story and hear the stories of other Alaskans. It explores the Statehood experience in three ways. It examines the statehood experience; starts a statewide discussion about being Alaskan; and builds a tool to explore Alaska history.
