Great news, Southeastern Colorado History Day participants! The United Mine Workers of America is offering several very generous Special Awards for this year’s competition.
The best project that focuses on the 1913-1914 Southern Colorado Mine Wars and/or the Ludlow Massacre will be awarded $250.
(That’s $250 in EACH category!)
Also, a $500 scholarship check will be awarded to the best prize overall!
The Ludlow Centennial Commemoration is organizing events this year to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Ludlow Massacre. Please visit their Facebook page — it is a treasure trove of resources for students, and local events are regularly advertised.
