Accompanying the portrait will be a George Washington Celebration Kit with suggested activities to commemorate the dedication of the portrait, as well as suggested lesson plans for classroom use.

Box 110, Mount Vernon, VA 22121. The letter should state 1) the space where the portrait will be hung; and 2) the school’s street address for UPS delivery.
