Freedom Cup

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – The Supreme Court of Missouri’s Committee on Civic Education is seeking applicants for The Constitution Project, a statewide competition for high school students that will be held during the fall 2016 semester and will culminate with championship rounds in Jefferson City.
