National Anthem Coast to Coast Sing-a-Long

This year, many schools are participating in the National Anthem movement -- a simultaneous, coast to coast sing-a-long of the Star-Spangled Banner. At precisely 10:00 a.m. PST - 1:00 p.m. EST, students are being asked to sing our National Anthem coast to coast. The event brings students together -- as the world came together -- in the weeks and months following 9/11 and is sponsored by the American Public Education Foundation. The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center will invite local school districts to be involved with a national sing-a-long of the Star Spangled Banner.
