The State Museum Celebrates Scholastic Achievement

March 7 @ 9:00 am

The State Museum will host three exhibits highlighting Pennsylvania student achievement Saturday, March 7 through Sunday, April 26:

The 2020 South Central Pennsylvania Scholastic Art Awards recognizes students for their creative excellence. Students from schools in Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Juniata, Lebanon, Perry and York counties showcase their talents and are juried by area artistic and literary professionals.

The 2019 National History Day in Pennsylvania is a year-long, classroom-based program engaging students in hands-on historical research. Students select a topic based on the annual theme, research and analyze primary and secondary sources, draw conclusions, and create projects to demonstrate their learning. National History Day in Pennsylvania is managed by the Army Heritage Center Foundation.

The 2019–2020 Future City Competition starts with a question: How can we make the world a better place? To answer it, 6th, 7th and 8th graders imagine, research, design and build cities of the future that show their solution to a citywide sustainability issue. This year’s theme is “Clean Water: Tap into Tomorrow.” The museum will be exhibiting the top three winners.
