A "passport" with 19 sites of historical interest, will be made available for Jackson County's eight high schools. Students who visit the stops outlined in the brochure may do a rubbing on engraved plates at each site to document their visits and qualify for a certificate of completion.
"We are encouraging all teachers and students, especially those in history classes, to participate," said Public Information Officer Nicole Grundel. "This is a creative and interesting way to increase awareness of our county's place in history."
The passports will also be available on the bicentennial website, www.JacksonCounty200.com, for anyone to download.
