law day 1

The Mercer County Bar Association held Law Day on May 14th, 2018 at the Mercer County Courthouse.  To honor Law Day, the Bar Association once again sponsored an essay contest.  More than 50 essays were submitted by students from Celina, Marion Local, and Parkway Schools.  This year, the Law Day theme was “Separation of Power: Framework for Freedom.”

The winners, their parents, and teachers attended a luncheon and awards presentation.  Winners of the essay are pictured in the front row – third, fourth, and fifth from the left with members of the Mercer County Bar Association and elected officials. 1st prize – $100.00 to David Kramer, 2nd prize – $75.00 to Malcom Head, and 3rd prize – $50.00 to Zach Stein.
