September 17, Constitution Day is a national day of recognition for the United States Constitution.
According to the Library of Congress Public Affairs Office “Established by Congress in 2004, Constitution Day is an American federal holiday that recognizes the ratification of the United States Constitution on Sept. 17, 1787, at the Constitutional Convention…the legislation expands the Sept. 17 celebration of Citizenship Day, which President Harry Truman established in 1952 to recognize everyone who had become a U.S. citizen during the previous year. In combining the observances, the act mandates that all publicly funded educational institutions provide programming on the history of the American Constitution on that day.”
You can learn more about and honor the Constitution today by: • seeing the display in the LRC on the Constitution
• getting a copy of “The U.S. Constitution and Fascinating Facts About It” booklet that is available in the LRC and Student Life on Constitution Day (while supplies last)
• taking a Constitution Quiz and finding out your Constitution I.Q.
• learning more about the United States Constitution and Constitution Day online Three sites worth visiting linked here, are available from the LRC home page (lrc.nwfsc.edu) and are the National Archives, the Library of Congress, and the National Constitution Center
The freedom that we often take for granted is protected in a document that is 227 years old today. This is a good day to look not just at what is going on now or what is in the future for the United States, but to look at where we have been.
