NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The national motto “In God We Trust” will be required to be posted somewhere in Tennessee public schools this year.

The “National Motto Act” passed the Tennessee General Assembly last April.

Lawmakers who sponsored the bill said it had virtually no opposition.

The motto is required to be displayed in a prominent location such as an entry, cafeteria, or common area.

The bill’s language allows schools to display the motto on a mounted plaque or even student artwork.
