Poster contest, activities planned at Northland Library to mark Constitution Day

Tony LaRussa

To commemorate Constitution Week 2019, the Kushkushkee Trail Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution is partnering with Northland Public Library for the 6th annual Constitution Day activities.

As part of the celebration, local elementary-aged children are invited to participate in a poster contest titled “We the People …” and join in on activities planned at the library.

Poster contest guidelines will be available at the library’s Children’s Services Reference Desk starting Aug. 1. Details also can be obtained by contacting Stacey Shaffer at: [email protected].

Entries can be submitted at Northland Library or directly to Shaffer between Aug. 1 and Sept. 11. All poster entries will be displayed at the library during Constitution Week, which runs from Sept. 17 to 23.

A program will be held at the library from 3 to 4:30 to p.m. Sept. 21 featuring activities and a program by the Wildwood Long Rifles Club, which will bring the American Revolutionary War time period to life for students.

Awards will be presented to the top three poster contest entries in each of the four grade categories. Participants will receive a pocket copy of the Constitution and a pencil.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
