Stillwater Christian School seventh-grader Kendra Wolf won second place in the middle school category in the Montana Secretary of State’s U.S. Constitution Contest.

Students in grades K-12 were encouraged to submit essays, artwork, poetry, songs or other media forms on the topic, “Why the Constitution is important to me,” in recognition of U.S. Constitution Day Sept. 17.

In her essay, Wolf wrote about the 27th amendment, which Secretary of State Christi Jacobsen highlighted in a video to inform students about the power of the Constitution; the second amendment; and the first amendment as it pertains to freedom of religion.

The first place essay winner went to Townsend Middle School eighth-grader Bryleigh Erickson. In the high school division, Great Falls Central Catholic School junior Michael Faccenda’s essay received first place.

“There were some outstanding submissions, from the incredible artwork to the essays providing interesting points of view," Jacobsen said in a press release. “I'm excited to see our youth involved in learning about this significant document and sharing their views.”
