The Wilcox-Hildreth High School Media Center is hosting a new pop-up exhibition from the National Archives titled The Bill of Rights and You, commemorating the 225th anniversary of the ratification of this landmark document. It spotlights one of the most remarkable periods in American history, explores the origins of the first ten amendments to the U.S. Constitution, illustrates how each amendment protects U.S. citizens, and looks at how Americans exercise the rights outlined in the amendments. The Bill of Rights and You invites visitors to connect directly with the people, places, and events that mark this historic document’s evolution. The exhibit will run through February. The public is encouraged to come and view the exhibit during the week with hours of 8:00-4:00. Please check in at the office.
The Bill of Rights and You is organized by the National Archives and Records Administration, and traveled by the National Archives Traveling Exhibits Service (NATES). This exhibition was developed in collaboration with the National Archives’ National Outreach Initiative to commemorate the 225th Anniversary of the Bill of Rights. The exhibition is presented in part by AT&T, Seedlings Foundation, and the National Archives Foundation. This exhibit is brought to you in collaboration with the Nebraska Humanities Council and the Federation of State Humanities Councils.

Earlier this school year, Mrs. Stratman, WHPS Media Specialist, applied for a grant for up to $400 provided by the Republican Valley Library Service (RSVL) to be used to enhance the library program. When notified that our library was a grant recipient, Mrs. Stratman used the money to purchase a new updated floor globe for the Media Center at Wilcox. Since its arrival, students have enjoyed locating various places in the world that they read and study about.
