Celebrate Constitution Day by exploring the history, purpose, and legacy of the US Constitution, a historic document that has shaped our history and lives. On September 17, 1787, delegates from the newly-formed states signed the Constitution of the United States. Congress passed a law to commemorate the day as “Citizenship Day” in 1952, and a new law renamed the holiday “Constitution Day” in 2004.
Constitution Day is an opportunity for students to broaden their knowledge of the Constitution and our roles as citizens.
