200 Alabama Bicentennial

Celebrating Alabama’s 200th birthday2017 2018 2019

Alabama’s 200 Bicentennial Schools submitted their final reports in August 2019. Community leaders from across the state served on committees tasked with evaluating each project and selecting twenty-one schools, three from each congressional district, to receive the additional designation of Alabama Bicentennial School of Excellence.

The selected schools received a $5,000 Governor’s Award grant to support their continued commitment to student-led community engagement, as well as a sculpture made of Alabama marble and banners for display at their campuses.
