“Law Day is our opportunity to educate the public about the legal system,” said Oklahoma Bar Association President James T. Stuart of Shawnee. “We incorporate the art and writing contests to reach out to even the youngest citizens. It is inspiring to see these bright students so engaged and interested in the law.”
More than 1,100 students entered the contests, themed “Realizing the Dream: Equality for All.”
