Elementary students invited to participate in Law Day art contest

2016 Law Day Art Contest

In recognition of Law Day, May 1, 2016, The Missouri Bar Young Lawyers’ Section is sponsoring an art contest for Missouri elementary school students. This year’s theme celebrates the 240th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence.

The contest has two divisions: Kindergarten-Grade 2 and Grades 3-5. All mediums of art will be accepted, including pencil drawings, paintings and pen and ink. Entries should be at least 8 inches by 10 inches, but no larger than a standard poster board, and must be received by Feb. 26, 2016.

All entries will be judged based on originality and interpretation of the theme, and winners will be announced by March 5. Winners and their teachers will be honored at The Missouri Bar Outstanding Citizens luncheon on March 14 in Jefferson City, and the winning entries will receive a certificate and be posted on The Missouri Bar’s website.
