Program ideas for younger audiences

  • Enlist a Teen Advisory Board to help plan and promote programs for young adults.
  • Plan a program showing middle grades how to use primary sources in historical research.
  • Engage young people in hands-on activities during their exhibition visit, such as bookmaking or printmaking activities.
  • Develop a teen poetry slam. Teens write and perform poems that creatively express thoughts related to the history and impact of the King James Bible.
  • Partner with a local children’s museum on programs about exhibition themes.
  • Create a documentary shorts contest. Teach youth video production software and invite them to explore exhibition themes via images and sound.
  • Sponsor an essay contest: “Why is the King James Bible still important today?”
  • Work with young people to research everyday sayings that come from the Bible, and learn about the process of translating the Bible into other languages.
