The Nevada Supreme Court’s
Law Day 2013
EASY ESSAY CONTEST
NEVADA STUDENTS CAN WIN HUNDRED$ OF DOLLAR$
IN 100 WORDS OR LESS
THE CONTEST BEGINS MARCH 18, 2013
The Nevada Supreme Court is again conducting its Law Day EASY ESSAY CONTEST allowing Nevada’s high school and middle school students to win $100 each week for five weeks by writing an essay of 100 words or less.
This easy weekly student essay contest for Law Day will award $100 cash prizes each week, courtesy of Nevada Supreme Court Justice Michael Cherry.
Each Monday for five weeks (beginning March 18) an EASY ESSAY CONTEST question will be posted on the Supreme Court’s Law Day website. Each question will be related to the American Bar Association’s Law Day theme of REALIZING THE DREAM: EQUALITY FOR ALL. Students must simply write an essay of 100 words or less and email the entry to the Nevada Supreme Court.
WHAT PERSON DO YOU ADMIRE IN THE FIGHT FOR THE DREAM OF EQUALITY? TELL US WHY AND HOW THAT PERSON HAS AFFECTED YOUR LIFE?
Essays are limited to 100 words.
Submit entries by email to email@example.com by 5 pm Friday (April 19).
A panel – including Supreme Court Chief Justice Nancy Saitta – will judge the entries and pick one winner each week to be awarded $100. We are looking for thoughtfulness, creativity, knowledge, and writing skills. And don’t forget to use a couple of big words so we know you are really smart (not required).
