Toolbox Workshop: Historical Markers & History Fund Grants

August 17, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 3:00 pm


A two-for-one deal for our August Toolbox Workshop!

The morning session “How to Win an Ohio Historical Marker” will be led by Laura Russell, the Historical Markers Coordinator at Ohio History Connection, from 10:30am-noon. The competition to obtain Ohio Historical Markers has increased remarkably. Besides reliance on creditable sources and compelling statements of historical significance, strong marker applications share other traits. Find out what those are and how to submit an application that will win approval.

We will break for lunch (not provided) before Andy Verhoff, the History Fund Grant Manager at Ohio History Connection, begins the afternoon session “How to Write a Good Grant & Introduction to the History Fund” at 1:30pm. Discover grant writing techniques and learn about the History Fund grant program of the Ohio History Connection. Understand the elements of a competitive grant application, and find ways to make your application STAND OUT!

Both workshops are FREE and open to the public. Send RSVP and questions to Brianna Treleven at bltreleven.americorps@gmail.com. Registration is highly encouraged but not required. Free parking is available in the lot on Wood St.
