The Maine Constitution Essay and Poster Contest deadline is March 11. You can get details here. The student submitting the top entry in each category will be invited to Augusta along with his or her class. They will be able to view the Maine Constitution, which is a particular honor as the Constitution is only removed from its special vault on very few occasions. The students may also visit the Maine State Museum and the State House.
History of the program: This program is designed to promote the history of Maine, an understanding of the Maine Constitution, and the importance of democracy and voting.
This contest is open to students at all grade levels.
