Hey, high schoolers, put down that bong, drop that Twinkie, turn off that video game. Even though you should rightfully be able to pursue those legitimate forms of happiness, you might be better off writing about the U.S. Constitution.

The Bill of Rights Institute is a nonprofit group that really, really digs our founding fathers and the Constitution, and they want kids to really, really dig them too.  So they’re offering money to students who best describe how the Constitution establishes and maintains a culture of liberty.
