In celebration of Law Day, Chief Justice Marilyn S. Kite announced the winners of the 2013 Wyoming Supreme Court Poster Contest. Nicole Sagner of Chugwater Elementary in Platte County received first place, Titan Edwards of Pioneer Park Elementary in Laramie County received second place, and Madisynn Weber of Manderson Elementary in Big Horn County received third place. There were over 90 entries and participation from eight different counties. Accompanying each poster was a one paragraph statement describing how the poster reflected the theme of the contest: Western Justice: Celebrating Our Freedom in Wyoming. Law day is a national day set aside to celebrate the rule of law. Law Day also provides an opportunity to recognize the role of courts in this democracy and the importance of jury service to maintaining the integrity of the courts.
“Today marks over 50 years of celebration of Law Day, a day designed to underscore how law and the legal process contribute to the freedoms that all American share. Our poster contest brings together diverse fifth graders from across the state for an exciting opportunity to express their creativity and celebrate this special day,” Kite explained.
The winning posters will be on display at the Wyoming Supreme Court, 2301 Capitol Avenue, Cheyenne, through the month of May.
