Fifth grader Morgyn Bunton of St. Andrew’s Schools, and seventh grader Genalle Anne Alvarez of Waipahu Intermediate School, are the winners in the 2019 First Circuit Law Day Art Poster Contest.
This year, the First Circuit opened its annual contest to all students on Oahu in grades 3 – 8. The contest asked students to interpret the Law Day theme, Free Speech, Free Press, Free Society, and submit an original piece of artwork. Students learned about First Amendment rights and created unique and creative artwork showcasing this year’s theme.
First Circuit judges graded entries based on the student’s interpretation of the theme, originality/creativity of their artwork, and visual impact.
First, second, and third prize winners each received a Law Day certificate, Law Day medal, and will have their artwork displayed at a courthouse on Oahu. First place winners in each category also won a pizza party for their class.
