National Archives featured article contest[edit]

The Charters of Freedom on display at the National Archives' rotunda.

I would like to announce the first featured article contest for the National Archives project. The National Archives has graciously provided us with prizes to give out to winners, including National Archives publications, tote bags, and other swag. The first contest is a challenge to get any of the articles on the three documents on display in the National Archives building's rotunda—the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights—featured (in any language).

There is a one-month timeline for this contest, with the deadline tentatively set for August 20. Please read more about how to participate here. Good luck! Dominic·t 20:47, 18 July 2011 (UTC)

Expansion of article[edit]

I've set up some sections about the actual documents displayed. More info is needed: specific histories of the individual documents, whether the displayed docs are originals of copies, whether all of them go into the vaults or just some, etc. (The "See also" links are just starting points.) Happy editing and Happy New Year.--S. Rich (talk) 21:37, 29 December 2011 (UTC)21:37, 29 December 2011 (UTC)
