Praise for Past Years’ Traveling Exhibits

CTKG nominee Gavin talks about his exhibit panel to younger students at Webster Hill Elementary School.

The traveling exhibit helped generate excitement on the part of students and their parents. It was a great visual for back to school night when I introduced the program.” — Christina O’Neill, Long Meadow Elementary School, Middlebury

“We really enjoyed having the exhibit here!” — Jeff Cowan, Webster Hill School, West Hartford.

“…It was the CTKG program, the traveling exhibit and the lesson materials that were a real motivation for our service work.” — Elaine Temel, Pawcatuck Middle School, Stonington

All of these kids have such powerful things to say. It’s so impressive. And some of them picked such adult topics like homelessness. I can see them all going on to do big things!” — Visitors to Connecticut’s Old State House.
