Idaho Humanities Council distributed the National Archives pop-up exhibit, The Bill of Rights and You, to 29 venues throughout Idaho. These venues included schools, libraries, and other non-profit organizations.

The Bill of Rights and You exhibit was developed by The National Archives to commemorate the 225th anniversary of the ratification of the Bill of Rights. It spotlights one of the most remarkable periods in American history, explores the origins of the first ten amendments to the U.S. Constitution (known collectively as the Bill of Rights), illustrates how each amendment protects U.S. citizens, and looks at how Americans exercise the rights outlined in the amendments
