The CCBA’s Community Service Committee has planned to hold an art and essay contest in honor of Law Day. The contest will be open to students registered at local middle and high schools (public and private). Members of the bar are encouraged to share information about this competition with local students and schools.

The “CCBA Law Day Art & Essay Competition 2016” is designed to honor Law Day, an annual time to celebrate the role of law in our society. The theme for 2016 is “Miranda: More than Words” and the students’ work will explore the procedural protections afforded to Americans by the U.S. Constitution, how these rights are safeguarded by the courts, and why the preservation of these principles is essential to our liberty.

Cash prizes have been pledged by CCBA Merchant Members, Allen Kaercher from Kaercher Insurance and Shahzad Ali from Investment Management Counsel, to be awarded to the top three winners in each of the two categories of the competition. The members of the CCBA’s Community Service Committee will judge the competition and select the prize winners.

Students who want to compete must complete the official entry form and follow all competition rules and guidelines set forth by the CCBA. See CCBA-Law-Day-Art-Essay-Competition-Entry-Form-FINAL (PDF). Deadlines for submissions will be due to the CCBA by March 31, 2016 and restrictions apply. Please direct questions regarding entry or rules to stephabbott@clarkcountybar.org or 702-387-6011.
