PHILADELPHIA (AP) – If you had six words to express what America's priorities should be, what would you say?

That's the challenge from the National Constitution Center as part of a new civic engagement program.

People can submit their six-word campaign speeches, in writing or on video, to the Constitution Center's website. More than 20,000 entries have been submitted.

The challenge is part of the center's project for the presidential election year. It's called Address America.

Entries include “Govern for people, not the party,” `'True liberty is born from hope” and “Hate and fear are not policy.”

The project continues through Oct. 29, when the center will host writers, performers and community members delivering their own six words.
