Hometown Teams_Title Treatment_SM_color_FNLDoes your community have a history of dedicated fans, inspiring athletes, motivational coaches, or legendary rivalries? What sports traditions bond your community across time, cultures, and generations? Are you wondering how your nonprofit organization can be a part of a statewide conversation about sports and community? Apply to be a Hometown Teams partner site with the Kansas Humanities Council.  

As part of the Hometown Teams statewide initiative, partner sites work alongside the six sites hosting the Smithsonian Institution traveling exhibition to tell the story of how sports build and unite communities in Kansas.

Hometown Teams partner sites receive $1,500 to tell their story of sports and community through exhibitions, oral history projects, speaker series, and other humanities projects. Click here for examples of past partner site projects.

Partner sites also receive training with Smithsonian Institution staff and statewide publicity and promotion of their Hometown Teams project from KHC, including listing in a statewide brochure.
