Young Chautauqua

Created by Nevada Humanities in 1993, Young Chautauqua is an award-winning program in which young people learn how to research and develop original Chautauqua presentations. In 2001, Nevada Humanities received a Coming Up Taller Award from the President’s Commission on the Arts and Humanities for developing the national program model for Young Chautauqua. Nevada Humanities produces and distributes The Young Chautauqua Handbook, an educational resources for teachers and communities to facilitate Young Chautauqua programs around Nevada and the world.
