The Constitution Plaza Dedication Ceremony
In December 2016, The U S. Constitution Scholarship Foundation was established as a 501(c)3 educational organization in Nassau County to bring knowledge and an understanding of the U.S. Constitution and our American Heritage to our community and especially our high school students. Through our University of US program, we have had nearly 150 students graduate from classes on the U.S. Constitution. We have awarded over $150,000 in scholarships to Nassau County junior and senior high school students.
In December 2018, Nassau County set aside 700 square feet of the Robert M. Foster Justice Center for an area designated “The Constitution Plaza” to enshrine with brick pavers the names of student graduates and scholarship winners. Additionally, donations for pavers in The Constitution Plaza by private citizens or corporations are enshrined and used to help provide scholarships for the students. These funds are used exclusively for scholarships.
In April 2019, we kicked off the annual Nassau County Constitution Bowl patterned after the old College Bowl series seen on TV. All 4 Nassau County high schools and one Home-Schooled team participated. It was hosted again this year by Yulee High School.
In addition to the over 100 attendees at Yulee High School, there have been over 355 views of the event via Amelia Island TV and YouTube.
The Constitution Plaza
is a great local symbol for patriotism and love for our country.
The Constitution Plaza is a place to honor and remember those that have made our community and America great:
Students U.S. Military First Responders
Teachers Veterans Firemen
Police Officers Judges Doctors/Nurses
Those We Love
In addition to the Dedication and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony we will be honoring the Fallen Law Enforcement Officers in Nassau County with a special ceremony and the placement of pavers on Constitution Plaza.
On September 17th, 2021 at noon we held the Dedication, Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and recognized fallen Nassau County Officers to officially launch Nassau County’s Constitution Plaza.
