The event is scheduled during the lunch hour so Capitol employees and anyone else who wants to attend can bring their lunch and eat during the program.

The Courtroom will be open for tours beginning at 11:30 a.m. Justice Armstead will speak at noon and answer questions. His presentation will be followed by a showing of the video “Just the Facts: The United States Constitution.”

Constitution Day commemorates the signing of the United States Constitution in Philadelphia on Sept. 17, 1787. Congress established Constitution Day in 2004 with the passage of an amendment to the Omnibus spending bill of 2004 offered by West Virginia Senator Robert C. Byrd. Under that law, each educational institution which receives federal funds should hold a program for students every Constitution Day.
