Tacoma & Gig Harbor
The proposed Washington State National Maritime Heritage Area was the main topic of this year’s YHP. For many communities in Washington, including Tacoma, this heritage area would promote tourism and increase public awareness of the importance of Washington’s waterways to its history, economy, and development.
This year our students learned about the power of visual storytelling by creating videos. Eight groups were tasked with and documented their experience to show what they learned about Washington’s maritime heritage.
