Constitution Week USA is holding its first adult fine art competition this year as part of the annual commemoration of the birth of the U.S. Constitution.

This contest will join the student essay and art contests that have been part of the event in the past, with the artwork to be displayed at the Sept. 19 Constitution Fair at Gilbert’s Mesquite High School. The theme will be “Which Right is Right for You?” and focus on the Bill of Rights. Event organizers are seeking work in all media to display at the fair, and would welcome the donation of the pieces to the nonprofit organization as well.

Good morning all!  I understand the AZ Campaign For Liberty/The R3VOLUTION Continues will have 2 or 3 booths at the actual Constitution Fair....that is the plan.....hey ho...let's go.  A Ron Paul Patriot Head Banner may very well take 1st place at this event.
