The Utah Senate will reward outstanding students with scholarships to support their college and career goals. NEW for 2020, there is no specific theme. Students: You are encouraged to share a visual idea of an aspect of Utah that is meaningful and inspirational to you — the land, the people, a specific moment of history such as the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in Utah, the environment, flora, fauna, social justice, building community, innovation, exploration, new Utahns/Americans, etc. The competition is administered by Utah Arts & Museums. Read the 2021 guidelines carefully before submitting an entry."

Lesson about Utah American Indians

In partnership with the Utah Division of Indian Affairs, the American West Center has developed and produced these teaching guides and lesson plans for teaching the history, culture, and current issues of Utah’s American Indian tribes in the fourth and seventh grade Utah history classes and high school social studies classes. The Utah Indian Curriculum Project was developed in collaboration with the Utah State Office of Education, Utah’s American Indian nations, and KUED-TV, which in the spring of 2009 aired We Shall Remain: A Native History of Utah, a five-part documentary focusing on the stories and ways of the Ute, Paiute, Northwestern Shoshone, Goshute, and Navajo people.
