For The Classroom
Give students a new perspective on Indiana history and architecture with resources designed to help teachers use historic places as interesting and interactive tools for learning. Our materials have been carefully crafted to accent Indiana's educational standards.
Teachers can always find additional ideas and resources in our Library & Information Center. We offer children’s books, classroom activity ideas, tested lessons with an inter-disciplinary approach, as well as books on architectural styles and preservation techniques for students, teachers and the public.

For a job well-done
Indiana Landmarks recognizes educators, school-based programs, or youth serving agencies for their efforts to increase preservation awareness among Indiana youth with the Sandi Servaas Memorial Award presented annually in September, accompanied by $1000 prize!
Past winners have included a student-led group that raised money to save a historic gymnasium in New Harmony, a high school English Department from Indianapolis that wrote travel articles promoting historic sites, and a Lafayette Geography Club that produced exhibits and travelogues on historic neighborhoods in the community.
