2008 High School Constitutional Reform Education Contest

On January 31, 2008, the Alabama Citizens for Constitutional Reform (ACCR) Foundation launched its inaugural High School Constitutional Reform Education Contest.  The goal of this education initiative is to give high school seniors an opportunity to express themselves and, in the process, learn more about the 1901 Constitution.  The contest, which ends on March 14, 2008, is open to all public and private high school seniors in the state.
 
Students are encouraged to submit essays and multimedia entries based on the following theme for 2008: “Who needs a new Alabama Constitution?”  Additional information including the contest guidelines and an entry form can be found on the ACCR Foundation website: www.constitutionALreform.org  
 
The ACCR Foundation will offer first place ($500) and second place ($250) scholarship awards for the top two winners in both the essay and multimedia categories.  In addition, the winners will be recognized through the local media and at their respective high school awards ceremonies.  The first-prize winners will present their work during the annual Bailey Thomson Awards Luncheon on August 28, 2008.
