The Beginning: As recently as the 1970's, women's history was virtually an unknown topic in the K-12 curriculum or in general public consciousness. To address this situation, the Education Task Force of the Sonoma County (California) Commission on the Status of Women initiated a "Women's History Week" celebration for 1978. We chose the week of March 8 to make International Women's Day the focal point of the observance. The activities that were held met with enthusiastic response, and within a few years dozens of schools planned special programs for Women's History Week, over one-hundred community women participated in the Community Resource Women Project, an annual "Real Woman" Essay Contest drew hundreds of entries, and we were staging a marvelous annual parade and program in downtown Santa Rosa, California.

Monster Jam World Finals 2008




Sam Boyd Stadium




Monster Jam is an annual monster truck event held in Las Vegas. Monster Jam is the largest touring motorsports property in the world. With the help of Las Vegas, the Monster Jam World Finals has become a "weekend experience" where 45 monster truck teams converge.

It is the championship event of the USHRA Monster Jam series. It consists of racing and freestyle segments, and the winner of each is considered the series champion in that division for the coming year. The freestyle is especially notable as the track layout is typically the most extreme all season, with every obstacle being considered large, and it often produces a multitude of crashes. It is the highest profile monster truck event in the country.
