Constitution Day Information

In 2004, the Congress decided that “Constitution Day” should be observed in schools each year on September 17th with educational programs about the history and signing of the Constitution.

After ten years, New Hampshire newspapers, the New Hampshire Supreme Court and Nackey S. Loeb School of Communications are no longer co-sponsoring the Constitution Day Essay Contest.

The essay contest is being replaced by a Mock Trial Program coordinated by the New Hampshire Department of Education. Interested in receiving information about having your school participate in mock trial this year?
Contact: Jared Bedrick at

Interested in receiving ideas on how to celebrate Constitution Day in your classroom?
Contact Diana Fenton at the NH Department of Education for a list of topics for class discussion.
