The Minnesota Supreme Court Historical Society launches second annual essay contest. The contest is open to all Minnesota high school seniors and is sponsored in conjunction with the Minnesota State Bar’s Civil Litigation Section, the American Board of Trial Advocates and Minnesota Lawyer. Students will be competing for up to ten $500 scholarships.
This year’s question asks students to address the following question: Should the Minnesota Constitution be amended so that judges face retention elections instead of running against other judicial candidates? Students interested in participating must register by September 15 and submit their essays by January 15, 2013. The competition is open to the first 150 students who register.
