History by Students, for Students

ProjectWA is a quest to build interest in Washington State history by crowdsourcing historical information from across the state to live in a smartphone app. In 2016, students from Lopez Island School are researching and documenting the people, places and events they view as the most interesting in Washington State history. The students are publishing articles to this website and creating a companion mobile app called Washington State Insider, which is free for anybody to download. The app, built and donated to this program by 468 Communications, has a game component that can be used for fundraising. Users of the app can collect points every time they physically visit a place that’s listed in the app. For every point collected, 468 Communications will donate $1 to the purchase of new Washington State History textbooks for Lopez Island School District.
