Announcing the 2024 EduHam Online Competition and Lottery Winners

In partnership with Hamilton, we are pleased to announce the winners of the 2024 Hamilton Education Program Online (EduHam Online) competition and lottery. EduHam Online provides students in grades 6 through 12 with a free, tailored online curriculum that combines the study of the Founding Era with the performing arts.

This year’s exceptional participants include 10 students recognized for their competition-winning performances and 10 students chosen through a general lottery. All participants will receive an all-expenses-paid theater experience in New York City, featuring a performance of Hamilton.

“The rich and inclusive nature of the program, offering students the opportunity to compete or win through a lottery, is a testament to its commitment to providing access to all,” says James G. Basker, president of the Gilder Lehrman Institute. “We are grateful for our continued partnership with Hamilton through the Hamilton Education Program Online, as we strive to foster a lifelong love of learning and a deeper understanding of our nation’s heritage.”
