This is a collaborative project between Belfry High School’s Kentucky Studies classroom and The Stone Heritage Museum. The objective will be to find ways to encourage students to become active participants in the community, state, and nation, promoting positive student citizenship. This grant will provide the Kentucky Studies students with adequate technology so that they can work with members of the Stone Heritage Museum to record stories from the people who helped shape our community’s history. Students will have to work with members of the Stone Heritage Museum to determine the scope of work, such as videotaping interviews with community members, creating historical videos of the community, collecting historical photographs, creating promotional videos for the museum or writing and creating documentaries. The data will be permanently housed in the Stone Heritage Museum. Students will also work to enhance a website created for the Stone Heritage Museum by last year’s Kentucky Studies students. This will allow people who cannot physically visit the museum to enjoy the work students create and to help promote and enhance the Stone Heritage Museum.
