America250KY Objectives

America250KY Objectives


Incorporate new Kentucky-centric focus areas that encourage a broader exploration of how local/state people and movements reflect U.S. values. Explore authentic, honest, and inventive explorations of diverse people who have achieved greatness in Kentucky through new materials, lesson plans, exhibits, and resources.


Heritage Tourism

Enhance tourism efforts that reflect multiple facets of U.S. history. These could be locally specific or across a broader geographic area with unifying focuses. Utilize multiple partners to develop official materials and wayfinding signage.



Both bigger celebrations and series of smaller events will serve many purposes. Larger community-wide celebrations are anticipated, as are speaker series, performances, and specific thematically linked programming.



Create partnerships and programs that will persist beyond the official 250 celebration in 2026.
