Know Your Constitution
Autymn Cantrall, Tori Ward, and Mia Dexter are finalists in The Iowa State Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division “Know Your Constitution” Project. One hundred finalists were selected from the more than 1,000 students across the State of Iowa who participated in the “Know Your Constitution” Project. These finalists will be honored at a luncheon held in West Des Moines.
From the finalists, five students and their teachers will be chosen by a random drawing to attend the all expense paid, Close-Up Foundation’s five day long education work session in Washington, D.C., in February 2017.
The “Know Your Constitution” Project is designed to enrich students’ understanding and appreciation of the Constitution. The students participating in the project were required to familiarize themselves with Constitution related issues. A quiz was completed by each participating student. An essay question accompanied the quiz in case of a tie. This year’s essay topic involved Constitutional questions centered on the admission into the United States of immigrants from identified nations and the documentation of current residents in the U.S. of immigrants from those countries.
These three girls are an excellent example of what to be proud of here at Peet Junior High.
