The West Virginia State Bar and the West Virginia Department of Education are inviting West Virginia students in grades 6 through 12 to take part in the “Righting a Wrong” Video Contest. The grand prize winners will receive $1,000, the second place winners will receive $500, and the third place winners will receive $250.
Contestants are required to submit a three minute video on everyday wrongs that they feel should be righted. They can also submit videos on much more complicated topics such as changes they would like to see in the city and the country’s judicial system, or their future plans if they intend to become lawyers in the future.
Videos will be judged on originality, creativity, adherence to the theme, and overall quality. Submissions will be accepted from Feb. 18 to April 1. For more information, visit the official website, or contact Mike Frazier at the West Virginia State Bar at (304) 697-4370 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
