The Connecticut State Library is pleased to announce that our Connecticut in World War I (CTinWW1) project has been selected as a Game Changer by Connecticut Explored, the nonprofit organization that publishes Connecticut Explored magazine. This award is part of their “20 for 20: Innovation in Connecticut History,” a series highlighting 20 “Game Changers” whose work is advancing the study, interpretation, and dissemination of Connecticut history.
“This is an honor, not just for the State Library, but for all the people who took part in the various projects and programs that have been part of CTinWW1.” said Project Director Christine Pittsley. “The impact of these programs has been far greater than we could’ve imagined and we could not have accomplished this without the support of the people, organizations, and communities across Connecticut.”
