Constitution Day (September 17) marks the anniversary of the Constitution’s formal approval by the Constitutional Congress in 1787. The Congress was made up of representatives from the 13 states that were the entire U.S. at the time. The event created a central federal government to replace a looser confederation of states. The week of September 13-19 is formally observed by colleges and universities throughout the nation with educational events about the Constitution.
Students and staff at Florida Career College kicked off the festivities by participating in a Constitution Day Trivia Challenge hosted by the Library Department. The students, who answered correctly, received “Smarties” for being so Constitution- Smart!
The Student Ambassadors and the Library department decorated the student break area with red, white and blue banners and with an over-sized replica of the U.S. Constitution. Students also received a scrolled replica of the original U.S. Constitution and quill pens as souvenirs to commemorate the occasion.
Congratulations to all the trivia winners and a big thank you to the Florida Career College-Pembroke Pines staff and students at the for participating in our Constitution Day activities.
