Introducing the National History Day Georgia Topic Explorer
Georgia students have a new way to explore Georgia history, thanks to a collaboration between National History Day Georgia, the New Georgia Encyclopedia (NGE), and the Digital Library of Georgia (DLG).
The National History Day Georgia Topic Explorer features more than 40 topic profiles. Each profile includes an image, contextual information from the NGE, and sample primary sources from the DLG.
Georgia Humanities Awards $634,200 in CARES Act Emergency Operating Grants
Georgia Humanities awarded $634,200 in CARES Act Emergency Operating Grants to 77 museums, libraries, historical societies, colleges and universities, and other organizations that offer humanities programming to Georgians.
The grants, ranging from $5,000 to $15,000, were awarded based on the applicant organization’s humanities programming mission, demonstrated need, and annual operating budget. Some grants will allow organizations to keep staff employed; others will use funds to protect facilities and collections; some will offer virtual programming; and others will plan and train staff to prepare for facilities to reopen observing public health recommendations for reduced crowd size and social distancing.
Listening to the children make connections in the story beyond traditional comprehension was the highlight of the program for me! I was amazed how perceptive even the youngest participants were during the program.
—Georgia PRIME TIME® participant
PRIME TIME® Family Reading Time is a family literacy program that helps economically and educationally vulnerable families bond around the act of reading and talking about books. The program demonstrates a model of reading and discussion designed to encourage thinking beyond the standard who, what, where, and when of the story. The PRIME TIME® program is facilitated in Georgia through a partnership between Georgia Humanities and the Georgia Public Library Service.
This year alone, more than 3,900 children and adult caregivers have attended PRIME TIME® programs at 21 sites across the state, from Cairo to Chamblee.
Georgia Humanities recognizes the value of partnerships.
Our ongoing collaborations with cultural and educational organizations across the state broaden our impact and create opportunities for conversation, education, and understanding for Georgians.
Our most meaningful partnership is that with you—our donors. With your support, we share and support programming that enriches lives, minds, and perspectives.
