Program Description

Program Details


The First Amendment is the cornerstone of American freedoms, and the freedom to laugh is an important part of that.

This year, celebrate the First Amendment Days by participating in (or laughing at) a First Amendment themed pun battle! We'll have multiple rounds and plenty of opportunities for our punsters to show off their skills. It promises to be a lot of pun(s)!


Presented in partnership with Ames Public Library and Iowa State University Greenlee School of Journalism and Communication. Supported by the Ames Public Library Friends Foundation.
