Call for entries: Constitution Day essay contest

posted Jul 21, 2014, 8:19 AM by Communications Coordinator
“Constitution Day” is observed in schools each year on September 17 with educational programs about the history and signing of the U.S. Constitution. To help celebrate Constitution Day, eight daily newspapers and the New Hampshire Supreme Court sponsor an annual essay contest for students in grades 5-12 on a topic related to our constitutional rights as citizens. Winning essays are published in the participating newspapers, and winners are invited to a special reception at the state Supreme Court and to the Nackey S. Loeb School of Communications First Amendment Awards.

The 2014 essay question and other contest details are available on the New Hampshire Department of Education web site.
