Constitution Day

Constitution Day

Let the OCBA help your students uncover their passion for civics engagement.

"Knowledge of our system of government is not handed down through the gene pool … The habits of citizenship must be learned. ... But we have neglected civic education for the past several decades, and the results are predictably dismal." – Justice Sandra Day O’Connor


The Constitution Day program was developed to increase civics engagement, participation and knowledge among 8th-grade students in a fun and engaging way. OCBA volunteer attorneys and judges visit area schools for a two-hour program to share the message and meaning behind our Constitution, and assist your students in becoming engaged and participatory citizens in the future. 

Not just another assembly presentation, the Constitution Day program gives students the opportunity to actively participate and get involved in the discussion. Students gain exposure to the rights and duties of citizenship via speakers, informative videos, mock trials and discussion sessions led by attorneys.

The word is out that the Constitution Day program is a hit with teachers and students alike. Launched in 2013, more than 200 students participated in that inaugural year.
