I’m getting in touch to invite your students to enter Constituting America’s We The People 9.17 Contest! This is a great educational opportunity for kids in K-12, College and Law School. We would be honored to have entries from all of the students that you know and work with in your education group! Winners get a trip to Philadelphia to be awarded prizes at the National Constitution Center, including scholarships for older students and publicity for all winners! The 2010 and 2011 winners on our website loved the experience and learned so much about the Constitution and America’s founding by just entering the contest! Below is some information, including how to reach me, that may be posted or forwarded.
Influence kids through culture by encouraging students in kindergarten through law school to enter this fun and engaging contest that awards prizes, publicity, and scholarships for:
