Bill of Rights Day

St. Peter’s kids enjoying the day

Kids at DC elementary schools celebrated a Bill of Rights Day on Dec. 13, 2019. The goal was to commemorate the 228th birthday of the Bill of Rights. To this end, the National Education Project provided 44 free birthday cakes from Costco to fourth grade classes involving nearly 1,000 children in 17 DC elementary schools. This was a city-wide initiative, with at least one school participating in each of the City’s eight wards.

The National Education Project also provided each child with a free copy of the Bill of Rights which they signed and then to which was added their school picture. And the Project noted the generous grant of $500 it received from The National Capital Bank on Capitol Hill, which helped pay for the cakes. The National Education Project, Inc. is a non-political, 501(c)(3), tax-exempt, non-profit corporation. To make a tax-deductible donation or to obtain your own free copy of the Bill of Rights, visit
