“We the People of Davis,” a group of Davis residents interested in promoting the understanding of American history and the Constitution, recently completed the launch of Davis’ first celebration of Constitution Week.
Constitution events included a Facts Contest on the Constitution held at Picnic in the Park and the Davis Farmers Market. They also included a book club discussion of the new title “The Roberts Court” and a program focusing on the Fourth Amendment, both presented at The Avid Reader.
The main focus of the celebration was the essay contest on the topic of “How Does the Constitution Affect My Life?” We want to thank all who entered the essay contest this first year, acknowledging in particular those who were the first-prize winners in the four age categories: Nicole Woolley, elementary; Gabriel Bick, junior high; Sasha Harrison-Gunzelman, high school; Jackie Kinney, 19 and above.
We also want to express our gratitude to The Davis Enterprise and The Avid Reader for co-sponsoring this contest, Davis Awards and Konditorei for their contributions, and the City Council for their ceremony of congratulations and its proclamation recognizing the event and the essay winners.
Finally, we want to extend our appreciation to all in the Davis community who took note of, publicized and participated in this first Davis Constitution Week Celebration.
