The U.S. National Archives is holding a Bill of Rights (that great document that contains the first ten amendments to the Constitution) Twitter Contest. Between now and December 15–the 219th anniversary of the ratification of the Bill of Rights–The National Archives asks for contest entries that condense each of those amendments into separate bite-sized tweets.
Miss the submission deadlines? Each day of the contest the Archives will announce the previous day’s winner on Facebook and Twitter (@archivesnews). Archivist of the United States David Ferriero will pick one winner for each amendment based on brevity and general pithiness. Each winner will receive a Bill of Rights poster from the National Archives eStore, and winning tweets could be used in a future Archive store product.
Tenth Amendment Winning Tweet: “Power to the People! (conditions apply, void where prohibited).”
