How are you?

How do we write this date in words?

September 10, 2016

Thank you so much

Hi Hame,

September tenth, twenty sixteen


September ten, two thousand sixteen

Or you can mix and match the two elements

Hope this helps. But I can't really think of a situation when September 10, 2016 would not be preferred. It is very rare to see dates spelled out completely in English prose.

Hope this helps.
