First Amendment Congress

First Amendment Congress

This year, the First Amendment Congress discusses recent student protests that have made the news—protests that are possible because of the Free Speech, Freedom of Assembly, and Government Petition clauses in the First Amendment. For information about the the event, view the 2018 First Amendment Congress Flyer. Be sure and register your classes by November 9!

In addition to the Congress, Oklahoma students are invited to participate in the annual 2018 Zach Taylor First Amendment Essay Contest. Cash prizes are awarded to our first, second, and third place winners! View this year’s contest flyer. Deadline for entering essays is October 24.

Between the Congress and essay contest, more than 500 students are reached each year.
