Constitution Day at Chamberlain

September 17th is Constitution Day!

Why Constitution Day?

Constitution Day commemorates the day that the Constitution of the United States was signed on September 17, 1787. 

In 2004, an amendment to Title 36 Patriotic and National Observances, Ceremonies & Organizations, Section 106, changed the observance of Citizenship Day to Constitution Day and Citizenship Day. Part of the amendment requires that schools and educational institutions mark the day with education programs/activities remembering the privileges of citizenship in the United States of America (Library of Congress, 2019).
