“How Does the U.S. Constitution Affect My Life?” is the subject of an essay contest for schoolchildren and adults, sponsored by We the People of Davis to commemorate the 226th anniversary of the U.S. Constitution.

Entry forms will be available Friday, Aug. 16. The contest is divided into three categories for students in Davis schools — sixth-, ninth- and 12th-graders — as well as adults 19 years or older.

A $100 prize will be awarded to the winner in each category. There is no entry fee.

Entry forms will be available at The Avid Reader, 617 Second St. in downtown Davis, beginning Friday. Essays of 500 words or less must be submitted by 5 p.m. Friday, Sept. 13, and the winners will be announced Sept. 24, a week after Constitution Day (Sept. 17).

The four winners will be honored at a Davis City Council meeting at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 24, then will read their essays at a U.S. Constitution birthday celebration at 7:30 p.m. that evening at the downtown bookstore. The public is invited; a reception will follow.

For more information, call The Avid Reader at 530-758-4040, email avidreaderdavis@aol.com or visit www.avidreaderbooks.com.
