Hamilton Education Program Online August Newsletter: Back in the Game for 2022-2023

An EduHam student performerWelcome to the official newsletter for the Hamilton Education Program Online, the program whose goal is to help students in grades 6–12 see the relevance of the Founding Era by using primary sources to create a performance piece (e.g., a song, rap, poem, or scene) following the model used by Lin-Manuel Miranda to create the musical Hamilton.

The Gilder Lehrman Institute is thrilled to bring the Hamilton Education Program Online (EduHam Online) back to all schools with students in grades 6–12 for the 2022–2023 school year.

Competition opens on September 15.

Teachers and parents can register to engage in the program for their kids.
