The Indiana Bicentennial Commission has endorsed the first round of legacy projects.
Legacy Projects are generated by community members and endorsed by the Indiana Bicentennial Commission on a quarterly basis. These projects strive to leave a lasting legacy in honor of Indiana’s Bicentennial in 2016. Legacy projects are deemed open and accessible to the public, fundable without Commission support and achievable as an impactful contribution to Indiana’s legacy.
Projects and partners include the Indiana Department of Natural Resources, the Benjamin Harrison Presidential Site, a new trail honoring President Abraham Lincoln in Spencer County and an Indiana poetry book engaging all 92 counties, just to name a few.
Projects must meet at least one of the following goals or characteristics: culturally inclusive; creates a legacy for the future; celebratory; and/or engages and inspires youth and young adults.
