Poster contest celebrates Constitution Week
Elementary students from schools across the North Hills participated in the fourth annual “We the People” poster contest in celebration of Constitution Week — a commemoration of one of the nation's most important founding documents.
Sponsored by the Kushkushkee Trail Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, students designed posters that can be used to teach students in the future about the Constitution.
