Constitution Day commemorates the signing of the United States Constitution, on September 17, 1787. Educational Institutions receiving Federal Funding (federal grants, federal student loans or federal work study) are required by the US Department of Education, to participate in providing an educational program or activities about the United States Constitution, for its students.
Constitution Day is significant to the United States as we commemorate the adoption of the United States Constitution, specifically the Bill of Rights, which are made up by the first 10 amendments. The Bill of Rights highlights the privileges that all United States citizens enjoy.
Also celebrated annually on September 17th, is Citizenship Day, which is observed to reflect on what it means to be a United States citizen for individuals who were born in the United States, became naturalized United States citizens or individuals working towards becoming a United States citizen.
