WE WILL BE CELEBRATING THE 250TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE U.S. “OHIO-STYLE” AND YOU’RE INVITED!
BECOME AN OFFICIAL AMERICA 250-OH COMMUNITY!
Our Bold Goal: To have at least 250 communities that will be designated as an official AM 250-OH Community, creating hundreds of exciting and engaging opportunities to celebrate and commemorate the 250th anniversary of the U.S. in 2026.
We are inviting all levels of municipalities from across the state to apply to be an official AM 250-OH Community. This special designation from the AM 250-OH Commission provides an opportunity for local leaders to network, partner, and exchange information with the state commission team. Communities will receive access to resources like digital toolkits, an online community platform, and regular check-ins with other AM 250-OH Communities, recognition of your participation in AM250-OH celebrations and commemorations as well as the opportunity to develop and grow professionally and personally.
How it works: Each AM 250-OH Community should designate one to two (1-2) individuals from your governmental organization, plus one (1) member from a local civic, non-profit, or corporate organization to serve as liaisons with the America 250-Ohio staff. Once the municipality becomes an AM 250-OH Community, you are encouraged to create a committee involving individuals that represent the different aspects of the community, to help plan activities to celebrate the anniversary.
The AM 250-OH local liaisons will work closely with the AM 250-OH staff through an assigned staff liaison who will provide information to the community or committee to help them plan and coordinate, make connections, and access resources.
