Constitution Month Teacher Contest

Follow Us
During the month of September we celebrate the United State Constitution and in particular the signing by the founders of our nation of the Constitution on September 17th. The State of Utah has designated the month of September as “American Founders and Constitution Month.” We recognize the U. S. Constitution as the oldest written constitution in the world and one of our most important documents. We invite all teachers and schools to celebrate our founding document through decoration, display, and activities in both classrooms and schools helping young people to recognize the importance of the U. S. Constitution and the role it continues to play in all our lives.
