Two AP US History students, freshman Elaina Dohlman and junior Carly Kuhse were named finalists in The Iowa State Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division “Know Your Constitution” Project. Sixty finalists were selected from the more than 500 students across the state of Iowa who participated in the “Know Your Constitution” Project. These finalists were honored at a virtual awards program over Zoom on February 15, 2021.
The “Know Your Constitution” Project is designed to enrich students’ understanding and appreciation of the Constitution. The students participating in the project were required to familiarize themselves with Constitution-related issues. A quiz was completed by each participating student. An essay question accompanied the quiz. This year’s essay topic involved Constitutional questions centered on the restoration of voting rights to convicted felons and limitations placed by a fictitious state on their participation.
The Know Your Constitution program is sponsored by The Iowa State Bar Association, with additional funding from the Iowa State Bar Foundation and IOLTA.
