Celebrating Arizona's Centennial

 Here are links to the AZ Centennial websites and websites for states that have recently celebrated or are celebrating with us (New Mexico)

Arizona 100 - The Centennial is Arizona’s 100th birthday, which takes place on February 14, 2012. The goal of the Arizona Centennial is to inspire all Arizonans to appreciate and celebrate our state’s rich past, celebrate the present, and, together, create a vibrant and sustainable future. A great way for communities, organizations and individuals to get involved in the Centennial is by putting on an Official Centennial Event or Legacy Project within their community.

Arizona Centennial Legacy Projects -  An Arizona Centennial Legacy Project accurately portrays a significant aspect of Arizona history, is educational and lasting.
Applications accepted until February 14, 2012

ADE Arizona Centennial Resources - By proclamation of President William Howard Taft on February 14, 1912, Arizona became the 48th and the last of the contiguous states to enter the Union of the United States of America.

We’re collecting Arizona Stories, and we want you to share yours with us. Tell us something about Arizona that you cherish. Tell us about the way things used to be, or what you hope they can become. Tell us about a hardship you’ve faced. Tell us a joke. Tell us about your hometown, your family and your friends. Tell us what you would like other Arizonans to know and remember.
