Penny Drive!The beginning of the school year is still a couple months away, but it is never too soon to start thinking about preserving our state's history. Your school can help keep Missouri's two hundred year old founding documents around for another two hundred years!

The Bicentennial Penny Drive, organized by Missouri Humanities Council, a partner in the Bicentennial Alliance, is taking place in Missouri public elementary schools now through 2021. The goal of the Penny Drive is to raise funding for the conservation of founding state documents in honor of the bicentennial of Missouri statehood.
