Observing Constitution Day


On September 17, 1787, the delegates to the Constitutional Convention met for the last time to sign the document they had created.

The National Archives and Records Administration celebrates this important day in our nation's history by presenting the following activities. We encourage educators and students at all levels to learn more about our Constitution and government.
