vermont history trek 

Here's how to do it:

Download and print the Vermont History Trek Activity Guide. Read it to find out all the cool activities you can do while exploring Vermont history where it happened.

Make A Vermont History Trek Journal. Learn how here.

Earn points. Choose the places you want to visit and the activities you want to do. For every Vermont Historic Site you visit, you’ll earn 20 points. For every activity you do at a site, or when you get back home, you’ll earn more points.

Use your journal to record your activities and to keep track of your points.

Earn a prize. When you reach 150 points and have visited at least two Historic Sites, submit your journal (or a photocopy or digital scan of it) and a CD of your photographs and video. If you send us your original journal and/or pictures, we’ll be sure to send them back to you.

Success! We’ll read your journal and check your points. If you meet the requirements (and we think you will), we’ll send your prize: a VERMONT HISTORY TREK BASEBALL CAP. Wear the cap when you visit any of the State Historic Sites this year and next, and you and your family will be admitted for FREE!

 You'll have face-to-face meetings with history!
