Overview:

Launched in 2003, TEACHING THE HUDSON VALLEY (THV) helps educators discover, appreciate, and share the region’s natural, historic, and cultural treasures with children and youth. THV fosters collaboration among schools, museums, parks, historic sites, art galleries, libraries, and other groups.


THV Explore Awards

Purpose:
  • Create opportunities for students to explore the history, environment, and culture of the Hudson River Valley by connecting their studies to significant places.
  • Encourage students’ appreciation for and stewardship of their communities and cultures.

Applications must be submitted at least six weeks before your proposed trip.
