Lookout Mr. President, your alma mater is busy prepping another constitutional scholar.

Today's Honolulu Staradvertiser(there is a pay wall :() reports that...

Matthew Shimura, who recently completed his freshman year at Punahou School, earned top honors in C-SPAN's national video contest that challenged middle and high school students to make a video documentary that brings the U.S. Constitution to life. Shimura's video earned him a trip to Washington, D.C., an interview with Washington Journal, $1,000 for his school to buy digital video equipment, and a $5,000 scholarship.

The video entitled:The Constitution and the Camps is terrific in relating how just because a certain group is feared by another portion of the population; the individuals within that group should still be protected by the due process clause of the 5th amendment. This video should be required viewing for all legislators and run on an endless loop in the Arizona state house!

Congratulations to Matthew and Punahou for continuing to teach Americans about our Constitutional rights!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
