KIDS: Call for Connecticut Photos

{Spotlight Page Header} In the Spotlight
ConneCT Kids would like to begin a new feature "Where in Connecticut is the Colonial Robin?" This feature would spotlight famous Connecticut landmarks, buildings, monuments, historical sites or places of interest throughout our state. Children would be asked to identify these places or things using a series of photographs and written clues. The answer page would include the name of the place or object, its exact location, a short history, and reasons why it is significant to Connecticut. It is hoped that through this feature, children will gain a greater understanding of, and appreciation for, Connecticut history and interesting places to visit. {Colonial Robin}
