Voting-Your Civic Duty
Constitution Day commemorates the September 17, 1787 signing of the U.S. Written in 1781, ratified in 1788, and in operation since 1789, the United States Constitution is the world's longest surviving written charter of government. For over two centuries the Constitution has remained in force because its framers wisely separated and balanced governmental powers to safeguard the interest of the majority rule and minority rights, of liberty and equality, and of the federal and state governments. Since 1789, the Constitution has evolved through amendments to meet the changing needs of a nation now profoundly different from the eighteenth-century world in which its creators lived.
To encourage all Americans to learn more about the Constitution, Congress in 1956 established Constitution Week, to begin each year on September 17th, the date in 1787 when delegates to the Convention signed the Constitution. In 2004, Senator Robert C. Byrd of West Virginia included key provisions in the Consolidated Appropriations Act of Fiscal Year 2005 designating September 17th of each year as Constitution Day and requiring public schools and governmental offices to provide educational programs to promote a better understanding of the Constitution.
Constitution Day is annually on September 17th. The 17th falls on a day in which TVCC is not yet in session, therefore, TVCC will observe Constitution Day on the first day of school.
The Associated Student Government will facilitate the celebration of Constitution Day to help student develop an understanding of civic involvement and responsibility through the history of our constitution. Students will view a slideshow presentation as well as have printed literature available to them.
The purpose of this webpage is to provide you with additional information and resources on the Constitution and what it means to you.
