2023 First Circuit Law Day Art Contest Winners AnnouncedPosted on May 23, 2023 in Featured News, News & Reports, Press Releases
Lucy Grant, a fourth grader at Aliʻiōlani Elementary School, and Keahi Yuen, an eighth grader at Maryknoll School, took the top prizes in this year’s First Circuit Law Day Art Contest.
The First Circuit Court celebrated Law Day 2023 by inviting all Oʻahu students in grades three to eight to showcase their creativity and talent with artistic interpretations of the Law Day theme: “Cornerstones of Democracy: Civics, Civility, and Collaboration.” This year’s theme highlighted how rebuilding trust in our institutions, respect for one another, and our willingness to collaborate to address the challenges that face our nation are important features in preserving our democracy and republic.
First Circuit judges graded entries based on originality, creativity, and visual impact.
First, second, and third place winners each received a Law Day certificate, gift card, and Law Day medal. Their artwork will also be displayed in one of Oahu’s courthouses during the next year.
