Constitution Day

Constitution Day and Citizenship Day is a combined event that is annually observed in the United States on September 17. This event commemorates the formation and signing of the Constitution of the United States on September 17, 1787. It also recognizes all who, by coming of age or by naturalization, have become US citizens.

The Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2005 requires all educational institutions that receive federal funding  to celebrate “Constitution Day” on Sept.17 by offering educational programming related to the Constitution. Middlebury College encourages all members of its community to be familiar with the U.S. Constitution and has provided this information, below, to make available some resources you may find interesting.
