The Constitution Hill debates comprise young participants from 24 disadvantaged schools across Gauteng. The debates take the form of round robins, culminating in semi-finals and finals where the winning schools are awarded books as prizes for their libraries. The aim of the debates is to encourage school children to learn about South African history and constitutionalism and for them to participate in a guided tour of the Constitutional Court premises. The project organisers believe that educating young people on the Constitution and Bill is vital for the entrenchment of constitutionalism in our country.


The Constitution Hill project received grants from the Claude Leon Foundation in 2011 and 2012.
