Constitution Day

Constitution Day was established by Congress in an effort to increase knowledge about the United States Constitution.  On May 2005, the United States Department of Education announced that all educational institutions are required to commemorate Constitution Day by offering educational programs each year on September 17.  When September 17 falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday, Constitution Day shall be held during the preceding or following week.  This day honors the signing of the United States Constitution by the delegates of the Constitutional Convention on September 17, 1787.
