September 17 is recognized in the United States as Constitution Day and Citizenship Day. The purpose of Constitution Day and Citizenship Day is to commemorate the creation and signing of the supreme law of the land and to honor and celebrate the privileges and responsibilities of U.S. citizenship for both native-born and naturalized citizens.
September 17 Is Constitution Day, Constitutional Trivia September 18-20
To commemorate Constitution Day, UMC will have a table set-up and give away the booklet The U.S. Constitution, And Fascinating Facts About It on Tuesday, September 17, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., in the Northern Lights Lounge, Sargeant Student Center. Federal law requires that all schools receiving federal funds hold a related educational program for their students on September 17 of each year.
Since this is a great fact and trivia booklet, the Office of Student Affairs would like to test your knowledge. Two triva questions will be selected from this booklet next Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. There will be an e-mail with two trivia questions sent out each of these days via UMC Unofficial Distribution List. All UMC students or UMC employees who answers both questions correctly each day will have their name entered into a drawing for $100 of Eagle Bucks or $100 Gift Certificate at the UMC Bookstore (winner's choice).
Participants must respond to the day's two questions by 11:59 p.m. of that same day. The correct answers will be communicated the with the next day's questions, so you must answer the questions on the same day they are generated.
Online students are also encouraged to participate! Following is a link to the electronic PDF version of the booklet: www.constitutionfacts.com/content/constitution/files/constitution_fascinatingfacts.pdf
