Sheedy History Contest
Since 1990, the William E. Sheedy Memorial History Contest has honed the research skills of Middletown’s eight-year-olds, who study town history as part of their third-grade curriculum. Each spring the competition invites students to research the life of an ancestor and report their findings in an essay, video or format of their choosing.
Working with Teachers

Elementary School Workbook
With the award-winning workbook, A Brightly Colored Past, elementary school students can explore local African-American history.
