Celebrating 200 years of the Hoosier state
By Nelson Price
This project first appeared in Indiana newspapers as a 15-part series targeting fourth graders, but entertaining readers of all ages.
Thanks to grants from four organizations, now copies of a hardcover, color book will appear in libraries across the state as part of a legacy project endorsed by the Indiana Bicentennial Commission.
The Indiana Newspaper in Education Advisory Board and NIE Foundation started the project in 2014. The Indiana Library Federation, the Hoosier State Press Association Foundation and the Indiana State Reading Association provided additional financial support to donate the books to each elementary school library in the state.
