Greeley-Evans Young Chautauqua Scholars

Welcome to the 19th annual High Plains Chautauqua, a living history festival that recreates the traveling tent Chautauqua tradition of the early 20th century. This year’s festival celebrated one of the most turbulent decades in U.S. history. Our theme, “Blowin’ in the Wind: The ‘60s,” evokes memories of flower children, tie-dye shirts, sit-ins, and war protesters as America morphed from the more conventional 1950s into the anti-establishment cultural phenomenon of the 1960s.

Many of our Greeley-Evans District 6 young scholars participated in this year's event!  The program featured celebrated historical figures such as John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, Lucille Ball, Little Raven and many more.
