September 17th is Constitution Day and Citizenship Day. The day commemorates the signing of the United States Constitution on this day in 1787, and also celebrates United States citizenship. On or about this day each year, educational institutions that receive federal funds are required to hold an educational program about the U.S. Constitution for students. LYC is happy to provide links to Constitution Day resources, as well as participate in school programs.
