100 +1 Objects Bracket Game

The DeKalb County History Center is seeking community input for a second round of a friendly competition to identify 16 historically significant “objects” throughout our county.

Twice a week beginning July 20, two objects “compete” as people can vote during 24 hours. For the final round, the 2020 bracket winner “Dairy Joy” will face the winning object from this year’s bracket game. Voting will begin on July 20 and end September 7, with the ultimate winning object announcement on September 16.

Participants will be able to cast votes via the History Center’s website or through the social media channels Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Detailed stories regarding each of the objects will be accessible through the website dekalbcountyhistory.org, along with a downloadable bracket form and the list of items from the first bracket game held in April 2020. An image of the winning object will be displayed in the Exhibit Hall at the History Center among the “History of DeKalb County in 100 Objects” display. The opening of the exhibit to the public is set for September 25. For more information, contact the History Center at (815) 895-5762 or email to info@dekalbcountyhistory.org
