Happy Constitution Day, Texas YG!! Today, September 17, 2018, marks the 231st anniversary of the end of the Constitutional Convention and signing of the U.S. Constitution in 1787. Thirty-nine delegates from twelve states signed this document which established the U.S. system of government as we know it today. Signers included George Washington and James Madison of Virginia, Alexander Hamilton of New York, and Benjamin Franklin of Pennsylvania. Our Constitution is the foundation of our Texas Youth and Government Program, as we strive to teach our students the inter working aspects of our legislative, executive, and judicial branches. Our Texas YG students not only study our governmental process outlined by the Constitution, they also serve as elected officials, judges, attorneys, lobbyists, and legislators. Additionally, our media students are able to exercise their First Amendment freedoms, granted in the Bill of Rights, with coverage of other delegates’ activities.
On behalf of the Texas YG state office, we ask you to join us in supporting our students in the spirit of Constitution Day through our fundraising campaign. Please visit our donate page to select your level of contribution to our valuable Texas YG program. Our festive donation levels will leave you feeling as official as our Constitutional Delegates.
Your gift will help our civic education and leadership training reach over 2,000 middle and high school students and over 160 school clubs throughout the state of Texas. Your generosity will provide financial assistance to these students and allow them to attend our district and state conferences and enhance their knowledge and leadership skills. We sincerely appreciate your support for the Texas Youth and Government Program and our students across the state.
