Constitution Day

Monday, September 17th, is Constitution Day 2018, the day celebrating the U.S. Constitutional Convention and the signing of the American Constitution more than 200 years ago in 1787. With this history in mind, the United States Congress has established Constitution Day as a special day every year to call attention to the adoption of the Constitution and those who have become U.S. citizens. 

Everyone is encouraged to check out the Constitution Center’s website to find out which founder you are most like, view Constitution Hall Pass videos, and take additional quizzes and learn other fun facts about the Constitution.
