Constitution Day is a federally recognized observance held annually on September 17, commemorating the signing of the United States Constitution on that same date back in 1787. Previously known as Citizenship Day and observed on the third Sunday in May, former West Virginia senator Robert Byrd passed an amendment in 2004 to formally change the name of the holiday to “Constitution and Citizenship Day” and develop a better understanding of the US Constitution by American students. This law mandated that all federal agencies and educational institutions that receive public funding provide resources and programming geared towards fostering knowledge of the Constitution.
