Outreach is an important initiative in the District of Connecticut. One of the primary goals of our district’s Public Outreach Committee is to educate young people and the public about the important role that the Federal Courts, our Judges and our lawyers play in preserving the rule of law.
We aim to establish partnerships that include federal judges, attorneys, educators, students and court personnel to open the federal courthouses in Connecticut for learning opportunities for students.
Our district is enthusiastic about this endeavor and we encourage you to visit the United States Courts website where you will find a plethora of information and exciting educational resources on many interesting topics, as well as videos, podcasts and photos.
Constitution Bowl Contest
In connection with its celebration of Constitution Day/Citizenship Day on September 16, 2016, the United States District Court is sponsoring a Constitution Bowl Contest with selected high schools in the area. We are also sharing the questionnaire with the public because it is desirable that each of us be knowledgeable about our Constitution. So please put on your thinking caps and take advantage of this opportunity to increase your citizenship I.Q.
If you want to see how you did, the answers will be posted on September 19, 2016.
