PA Humanities is extending the deadline to July 31 for “If You Were In The Room,” an initiative encouraging Pennsylvania’s youth to reimagine the U.S. Constitution if they were there at the time it was written.
Open to ages 16-22, participants submit a video or other creative work, such as a photo, poem or drawing, that addresses how different our governing document would be if they participated in its creation. Ten entrants will be invited to attend a curated educational experience, including two tickets to Hamilton on Broadway. WHYY, a PBS affiliate, will create and screen a short film of the entries.
“This initiative captures the inclusive spirit of ‘nothing about us, without us,’” said Dawn Frisby Byers, PA Humanities’ senior director of content and engagement. “We are excited to see the creativity and talent of Pennsylvania’s youth as they reflect on the history and enduring significance of the U.S. Constitution as we approach the 250th anniversary of our country.”
