Get Those Nominations in for Top History Sites

Get Those Nominations in for Top History Sites

March 31 is deadline to nominate sites for Kansas Wonders of History.

More than 100 nominations are expected to make the list for the 8 wonders of Kansas History, the latest in the "wonders" competition sponsored by the Kansas Sampler Foundation.

Some of those nominated will not be eligible because they were of the 24 finalists in a previous contest or because the fit better into another category.

People who need more information can contact Marci Penner at 5620-585-2374 or at [email protected].

Some great pieces of Kansas history have not yet been nominated.  You don't have to live there to nominate it. 

The top 24 will be announced April 22.
