The National Archives Foundation, the nonprofit partner of the National Archives, has launched a giveaway for free tickets for 1 adult and two children to attend its upcoming February sleepover at: http://www.archivesfoundation.org/sleepover/archives-sleepover-giveaway.
The February 6, 2016, “History, Heroes and Treasures” sleepover invites children (aged 8-12 years old) and their parents to spend the night in the Rotunda for the Charters of Freedom, the permanent home of the original Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights.
The February sleepover will highlight heroes in American history. It will feature numerous hands-on activities in the National Archives Museum through which participants will learn to become hero citizens before rolling out their sleeping bags to spend the night in the historic National Archives Rotunda. The next morning, they will enjoy breakfast – including pancakes flipped by the Archivist of the United States – and more activities before departing with special memories, new friends, and a great story to tell when they get back home.
Since 2014, the Foundation has held five sold-out sleepovers. Read more at Sleepover at the National Archives: 3 reasons your family will love it and watch a short video here.
Tickets to the sleepover are $125 per person ($100 for Foundation members) and are available at http://www.archivesfoundation.org/sleepover.
History, Heroes & Treasures is supported by the National Archives Foundation; John Hancock Financial; and American Heritage™ Chocolate.
