Law Day Art Contest for K-12 grades

The Mississippi Bar Association facilitates an art contest every year in conjunction with Law Day USA (May 1).  The winners have their art displayed at the State Capitol and in the MS Bar magazine.  I remember when I was in grade school, these type of contests would display the winners at the local mall. That was a big deal back then and encouraged my creativity.  I hope you will encourage your kids to participate.  


From the MS Bar:



In conjunction with Law Day USA on May 1, The Mississippi Bar and local bar associations are conducting their 12th annual statewide Law Day Art Contest. The 2014 Law Day Art Contest theme this year is American Democracy and the Rule of Law: Why Every Vote Matters . Entries are now being accepted until April 4 and all students grades K-12 across the state are invited to enter. Winners will be selected from every school per grade, and from those winners a first and second place will be awarded overall for the state for each grade. Statewide winners will be presented with award certificates, their artwork will be displayed in the Capitol during Law Week, April 28th - May 2nd and also presented in the summer issue of The Mississippi Lawyer magazine.
