Description:
Liberty Day’s purpose is to increase young people’s knowledge of the contents, meaning, and significance of our founding documents—the Declaration of Independence, U.S. Constitution, and Bill of Rights. It accomplishes this purpose through distribution of pocket-sized Constitutions and Declarations and through engaging students in activity-oriented, community service learning testing of facts learned using Quiz Cards. Students are empowered to increase their reading, writing, and speaking skills while building citizen awareness of the founding documents. Liberty Day supports special events on Liberty Day (March 16, birthdate of James Madison) at the State Capitol and throughout the year at multiple youth-friendly venues with strong parental and community service group involvement and support.
