At a time when we are all looking for meaningful ways to connect and educate online, we invite you to join students and teachers from around the world to commemorate the 19th anniversary of 9/11 by registering for the free Anniversary in the Schools webinar on Friday, September 11, 2020.

This webinar, which reaches hundreds of thousands of students and teachers each year, furthers our mission to honor the 2,983 victims of the September 11, 2001 and February 26, 1993 attacks. We provide this annual webinar to reach students in all 50 states and internationally.

Perfect for in-classroom or remote learning, the 35-minute program includes:

  • On-demand access to accommodate all time zones and school schedules 
  • Easy access for remote learners, who will be able to view the program on the anniversary by visiting
  • Personal stories from six diverse speakers—9/11 family member Julie Sweeney Roth, recovery worker Sonia Agron, retired FBI Agent Wesley Wong, North Tower survivor Michael Hingson, former Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Jon Leiken, and his daughter, Caleigh, who was born in New York City on 9/11
  • A live chat where students can directly ask Museum staff questions throughout the day
  • Viewing guides differentiated by grade level with discussion questions and extension activities
  • Expanded accessibility options, including closed captioning, American Sign Language interpretation, verbal description, and Spanish subtitles

The webinar facilitates meaningful conversations about unity, hope, and the spirit of 9/11 and provides a resource to teachers as they introduce 9/11 to the first generation with no lived memory of the day. Participants will learn in a comprehensive, fact-driven way about the events of the day as well as the ongoing impact of 9/11 in the world around them.

Register today and participate in an exclusive, educator-only preview of the full program beginning September 3, 2020, at 8 a.m. EDT at
