New Hampshire State House Bicentennial


Created by House Bill 1559 in 2014, the State House Bicentennial Commission's purpose is to plan and organize educational, cultural, and commemorative events to celebrate the bicentennial of the State House.

The New Hampshire State House Bicentennial Commission (NHSHBC), on behalf of the state of New Hampshire, is pleased to offer the 2018 NH State House Bicentennial Essay Contest. A total of nine awards will be given at each regional level and at the State level. Any child between the ages 5-21 that resides in New Hampshire and is a public, private or home school student in kindergarten through 12th grade can participate. Applicants must submit their poster essay accompanied by the Essay Contest Entry Form to the regional office in which their school is located.

The recipients of the Statewide poster contest, as part of an ongoing celebration in honor of the Bicentennial of the State House, were announced following the June 7th Executive Council meeting. The posters will be on display at the NH Department of Education State Board Room, August 17 - September 15, 2017. Then they will be displayed at the State Library.
