Fifth grade students at Sally Mauro Elementary carefully studied each word and event surrounding the most historical document in the United States, the Constitution. At stake was the knowlege of an important piece of history and a chance to hold bragging rights among their fellow students.

And a little money for the hard work didn't hurt.

Their hard work in studying came to a head on Sept. 16 when members of the Price Lions Club including President Barry Cook and Leonard Miller visited the school as part of Constitution Day. The celebration of the nation's founding document is held on Sept. 17, but because it fell on a Saturday the school observed the day on Friday, Sept. 16.

Students answered questions posed to them about everything in the Constitution and surrounding the importance of the document.

Getting the youth in the county to learn about the Constitution was one of the main reasons for holding the event for students, Miller said.

While the official day for observing Constitution Day has passed, Miller said the Lions Club is planning on working with more schools in the area.

On Sept. 28, a Constitution Day event will be held for fifth graders at Creekview Elementary at 8:30 a.m.
