Join OMA and other fellow history advocates at the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus for the annual Statehood Day advocacy event on Wednesday, February 26, 2020. The Ohio Museums Association is proud to once again be a partner for Statehood Day 2020.
Meet with your state legislators, network with fellow history professionals and find out which local history organizations are awarded Ohio History Fund grants to support their local, regional and statewide projects, programs and events related to the state’s history.
Governor Mike DeWine will join us in the morning to receive the Ohio History Leadership Award and to share some thoughts about his appreciation of history. A panel discussion of the centennial of women’s suffrage and women’s achievements will be featured during the lunchtime program. The day will conclude with the announcement of the 2020 Ohio History Fund grant recipients.
Statehood Day is a joint effort among the Ohio History Connection, Heritage Ohio, the Ohio Academy of History, the Ohio Archaeological Council, the Ohio Local History Alliance, the Ohio Travel Association, the Capitol Square Review and Advisory Board, the Ohio Museums Association, Ohio Humanities, Preservation Ohio, the Ohio Genealogical Society, the Ohio Council for Social Studies, the Ohio Historical Records Advisory Board, and the Society of Ohio Archivists.
The cost is $40, which includes lunch. Register online by February 19 at ohiohistory.org/statehoodday.
