Celebrate Constitution Day–September 17th

What is Constitution Day?

Educational institutions throughout the United States celebrate the anniversary of the completion of the Constitution on September 17, 1787. This day came about due to Senator Robert C. Byrd of West Virginia’s desire to increase student knowledge of the United States Constitution. Something he felt they were lacking. In 2004 the amendment passed by both the House and Senate, establishing the annual federal observance of Constitution Day. The law requires all educational institutions receiving federal funds implement educational programs relating to the United States Constitution on September 17th of each year.
