A note from Lin-Manuel Miranda

Well hey there…

Guess what? I’m back on Prizeo for One More Time!

Your incredible support for Hamilton is letting us bring the show to Chicago, so I want to say thank you by giving you and a friend the chance to win a trip to our Chicago opening night on October 19th. If you win, we’ll fly you out, put you up in a hotel, and you’ll get two tickets to the show!

And there’s gotta be an after-party, right? We’ll put you on the list and that’s where I’ll meet up with you to hang out, geek out on Hamilton, and take some photos together!

This time we’re raising money for The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History. Every $10 you donate is 100 entries to win the grand prize. Donate more and you’ll get more entries… and some exclusive One More Time rewards! This is your only shot to get ‘em.

Thank you again for going on this journey with me. (And it’s only the beginning.)

About The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History

The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History is a nonprofit organization devoted to the teaching and learning of American history. To provide resources and programs for educators and students, the Institute draws on top scholars, an unparalleled collection of original historical documents, and a nationwide network of Affiliate Schools. As a leading provider of K-12 programs, the Institute supports tens of thousands of teachers and millions of students in elementary and secondary schools in all 50 states, 4 US territories, and 39 foreign countries. 

The Hamilton Education Program:  Made possible by a partnership with The Rockefeller Foundation and Hamilton, the Institute’s Hamilton Education Program engages teachers and students in the Founding Era and the performing arts in unique and creative ways. Tens of thousands of low-income high school students are participating in a Gilder Lehrman-designed curriculum grounded in primary source documents. With their teachers’ guidance and the use of a dedicated website—which includes interviews with the original cast, an extensive collection of primary sources, and interactive features that explore the life and times of Alexander Hamilton and his contemporaries—students write songs, poems, raps, scenes, or monologues based on their own research. They then attend Lin-Manuel Miranda’s powerful musical Hamilton, an experience enhanced by their own knowledge of American history and the creative process. Select students also perform their work before their peers on stage at the theater, prior to interacting with cast members during a Q&A session and seeing the musical. 

Transformational Impact:  The Hamilton Education Program’s approach allows students of diverse backgrounds and interests to become academically engaged as historians, creators, and performers. This type of experiential learning gives students the opportunity to personally connect history to their own lives. Just as the musical has transformed the world of theater, the Hamilton Education Program has forever changed the way that students write and learn about American history and the creative process.

Furthering our Mission:  The Hamilton Education Program expands the Gilder Lehrman Institute’s 22-year mission to promote the study and love of American history. Enabling students to access rich educational materials, experience the musical Hamilton, and produce their own historically based creative work will connect them to contemporary performing arts, deepen their knowledge of our nation’s founding, and help them understand how that story is still relevant today.
