September 17 marks the anniversary of the ratification of the U.S. Constitution, and is designated as Constitution Day and Citizenship Day, by the United States government.
By Congressional mandate, “Each educational institution that receives Federal funds for a fiscal year shall hold an educational program on the United States Constitution on September 17 of such year for the students served by the educational institution.”
- The U.S. District Court will hold naturalization ceremonies during the month of September to honor Constitution Day and Citizenship Day. The ceremonies, which are open to the public, will be at the Thomas F. Eagleton U.S. Courthouse as well as at iconic locations within the Eastern District of Missouri.
