The Society works closely with several other statewide history organizations to sponsor the annual Statehood Day advocacy event, which is typically held at the Ohio Statehouse every year on or near the state’s birthday, March 1st. The next Statehood Day event will be at the Ohio Statehouse Atrium on Thursday, February 27, 2014. Erin Moriarty of CBS News is the keynote speaker at lunch. Watch the video of former Sen. John Glenn speaking at the 2012 Statehood Day event March 1, 2012 at the Ohio History Center.
