Constitution Week

On August 2, 1956, President Dwight D. Eisenhower officially enacted Constitution Week as September 17 through September 23rd. The Daughters of the American Revolution petitioned congress for a resolution to promote the education and study of America’s founding document.

Clean Elections is happy to celebrate Constitution Week with students and educators across the state as a part of our youth voter outreach initiative. On this page you will find video resources to play on demand in the classroom. These include a video from election experts with Clean Elections that provides an overview of the different branches of government, separation of powers, and how voting and elections work. Additionally, in partnership with the Civic Education & Community Engagement Committee, we are pleased to bring you the Civics Storytelling Series - a collection of civic inspiration stories and autobiographies read by local community leaders.

For more resources to celebrate Constitution Week, please visit the Arizona Department of Education’s Civic Education & Community Engagement Program website.
