Lincoln Forum: A three day symposium

Source: NYSUT Communications
The Lincoln Forum is a three day symposium held every year in Gettysburg, PA in mid-November for people interested in the life and legacy of Abraham Lincoln. Activities include talks and panels of leading scholars and guest speakers, historic tours, and annual awards given in the field of Lincoln studies.

Among its other goals, it also provides FULLY PAID expenses (travel, registration, meals, and hotel accommodations) in the form of scholarships to both deserving teachers AND students who wish to attend the event!

Information and details about the application process can be found on the forum's website, www.thelincolnforum.org.

Anyone who has attended this event returns home refreshed and re-invigorated about the importance of history and the key role that Abraham Lincoln played in our own national story.

For those interested in further information, they may call or email Paul Ellis-Graham at 845-781-6405 or pegsox24@gmail.com. Paul is a member of the NYSUT Board of Directors and serves on the Advisory Board of the Lincoln Forum.
