EduHam Online National Competition and Lottery

The Hamilton Education Program Online allows students the opportunity to create and perform their own narrative based on primary sources in the form of a song, rap, spoken word, or scene.

To help them in their journey, the program features expert advice from Lin-Manuel Miranda, the cast of Hamilton, and the Gilder Lehrman Institute’s master teachers on how to research, create, and perform your own original performance piece.

Students who create and submit a performance piece are eligible for our national competition and lottery, and the opportunity to see a live performance of Hamilton on an expenses-paid trip to New York City this spring! 

The contest will officially launch in September—keep your eyes out for more information in your in-box and on social media.
