Entry categories in this fall’s Davis Constitution Day Essay Contest have been broadened to encourage wider participation. Entries addressing the question “How Does the U.S. Constitution Affect My Life?” are due Friday, Sept. 13, at 5 p.m. at The Avid Reader, 617 Second St. Essays may be up to 500 words long.

Entries will be considered in four categories: elementary students, junior high students, high school students and adults age 19 and older residing in Davis. The winner in each category will receive a $100 prize.

The Constitution Day Essay Contest observes the 226th anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution, on Sept. 17.

Fliers detailing the rules and format for entering are available at The Avid Reader and online at www.avidreaderbooks.com. Fliers also will be delivered upon request to individual classrooms and schools in the Davis school district. Classroom sets are available as well. To arrange for delivery or for more information, contact The Avid Reader at 530-758-4040 or avidreaderdavis@aol.com.

Winners will be notified Monday, Sept. 16. They will be introduced at the Davis City Council meeting at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 24, and honored at a reception at 7:30 p.m. that evening at the Davis bookstore. The public is invited.

Winners also will be invited to read their essays at the program, and they will be published later in The Davis Enterprise.

Sponsors of the contest are The Avid Reader, The Davis Enterprise and a Davis group interested in American history and facts about the U.S. Constitution called “We the People of Davis.” Contributors to the event also include Davis Awards and Konditorei.
