Constitution Center test: State a point in 6 words
Web Producer: Taylor Avey
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - State your case in six words.
That's the challenge from the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia as part of a new civic engagement program. To put it less succinctly: If you had six words to express your thoughts on America's priorities should be, what would you say?
People can submit their six-word campaign speeches, in writing or on video, to the Constitution Center's website. More than 20,000 entries have been submitted.
The six-word speech challenge is part of the center's project for the election year. It's called Address America.
The project continues through Oct. 29, when the center will host writers, performers and community members delivering their own six words and describing the process that got them there.
