OCBA Poster Contest Winner: 1st Place!

First Place Winner of OCBA Poster Contest
Posted on 09/08/2022
Congratulations to Luz Quiroz, a student in Mrs. Smith's AP Government class, for winning 1st place in the 2022 OCBA Law Week Poster Contest.
This year's theme was Toward A More Perfect Union- The Constitution in Times of change

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union . . . .” are the opening words of the U.S. Constitution. At 4,400 words and signed in 1787, it is one of the shortest and oldest written constitutions in the world.

The Constitution is a dynamic document, that not only outlines a blueprint for government but also delegates power, articulates rights, and offers mechanisms for change. It is neither perfect, nor exhaustive, as our nation’s history makes clear. Legislation, court rulings, amendments, lawyers, and “we the people” have built upon those original words across generations to attempt to make the “more perfect Union” more perfect. That effort continues today, as contemporary leaders and everyday citizens raise their voices as loud as ever to fulfill the promise of the Constitution and create a more perfect Union.
