The Dictionary Project


Concord University is proud to partner with Bluefield State College, Princeton Rotary, and Bluefield Rotary for the past 13 years to participate in the Dictionary Project.  Every Mercer County third grader receives a new dictionary in result to the annual Dictionary Project.  Providing a dictionary for the county’s third graders is an annual collaboration in honor of Noah Webster’s birthday.  Each year, the group selects different school for the presentation ceremony along with snacks for students provided by Concord University.  The Dictionary Project, according to the nonprofit organization’s website, is an international effort working “to ensure that everyone will be able to enjoy the benefits of owning a dictionary.”  Additional information about the National Dictionary Project is available by visiting
