PHILADELPHIA (AP) — State your case in six words.

That's the challenge from the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia as part of a new civic engagement program. To put it less succinctly: If you had six words to express your thoughts on America's priorities should be, what would you say?

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.

Entries include "Govern for people, not the party," ''When will we the people learn," ''True liberty is born from hope" and "Hate and fear are not policy."

The six-word speech challenge is part of the center's project for the election year called Address America. It continues through Oct. 29.
