Constitution Day Events
Essay Contest – Topic: Patriotism and the First Amendment
NFL teams play the Star Spangled Banner before every football game.  Colin Kaepernick, a player with San Francisco 49ers, has angered fans by refusing to stand during the song.  He chooses to remained seated or take a knee to highlight the problem of discriminatory police practices.  Unlike in the NBA, where players are required to stand, NFL rules are silent as to whether players must stand during the National Anthem. The NFL is reportedly considering requiring all players to stand for the Anthem. Refusal could result in a player being fined.  Would such a requirement be constitutional or would it violate the 1st amendment rights of individuals that choose to remain seated as a form of protest.  Would your response be different if it were a high school or university requiring all students to stand during the anthem or be ejected from the stadium as if they had engaged in other inappropriate behavior? Please support your position with a logical, constitutionally based argument in 600 words or less.
Send your essay to: Dr. Susanna Peters, speters@mtu.edu no later than Thursday September 15 at Midnight.
PRIZES: First, Second, and Third Place Winners will receive gift certificates to Campus Bookstore in the amounts of 1st $100, 2nd $50, 3rd $25.
Winners to be announced at the Husky Statue celebration,Friday, September 16, at Noon (East Reading Room of the Library if rain).
Husky Band, Reading of the Constitution, and cookies will be at the Husky, as well.
