Sharing Our Past, Shaping Our Future

Funding will support 95 talks and living history presentations as part of the Council's Speakers Bureau; 25 First Wednesdays lectures, a monthly humanities forum held in 9 libraries statewide; reading and discussion programs, including 12 programs for adult new readers; 3 humanities camps for at-risk middle school students; and grants for projects related to Vermont history, the Civil War Home Front, and civic engagement.

In calendar year 2010, the Vermont Humanities Council (VHC) plans to use WTP funds to continue to build upon the successes of previous WTP grants. Between January 1, 2010 and Dec. 31, 2010, VHC will use WTP funds in four previously funded areas: public lectures and presentations, grants, reading and discussion programs and humanities camps. Program offerings will be free and open to the public.
