Constitution Day

MCC Observes Constitution Day on Tuesday September 17, 2013

The observance of Constitution Day was signed into law by President George W. Bush to commemorate the signing of the Constitution in 1787.  The Congress, by joint resolution, designated September 17 as Constitution Day In 2005. Manhattan Christian College will celebrate Constitution Day with a variety of activities and resources to promote appreciation for and the study of the Constitution from September 17 through 19.

Trivia Contests: On September 17, 18, and 19 (Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday), a trivia contest will be held with winners selected each day.  One question will be asked each day; the student with the exact or closest answer wins.  If multiple students submit the correct answer, a drawing will be held to determine the winner.  Each day’s winner will receive a gift card for a burrito from Chipotle.  Each day’s question will be posted in the lobby of Coffin Hall; the answer submission box will be at the same location.

Recognition of Our Veterans:  Several students attending Manhattan Christian College as well as many of our staff have served our country through military service in order to uphold the Constitution and protect our freedom.  We will be taking a moment during chapel worship on Thursday, September 19, to recognize and honor them.
