Community History Award

This community-based project brought together Alcoa and Maryville high school students, history and language arts teachers, public librarians, Blount County Genealogical and Historical Society volunteers, and members of Maryville’s mayoral office in a collaborative effort to develop a digital walking tour of Maryville and Alcoa. The research and conversation linked students together in a common interest in the connections of yesterday and today in the history of their towns and county.
