TBA Launches 2014 Video Contest

The TBA today announced the launch of the Fourth Annual YouTube Video Contest for middle and high school students. This year’s theme -- “There Ought to be a Law” -- challenges students to create a three-minute video that discusses an issue they would like to see addressed through the legislative process. In announcing the contest, TBA President and Sevierville lawyer Cindy Wyrick said, "The TBA encourages students to learn more about the ways laws are made by putting themselves in the position of elected lawmakers. My hope is that, through this program, students across Tennessee will learn more about our system of government by exploring the range of issues lawmakers confront every day." The contest is open to individual students or groups of students from any Tennessee high school, middle school, home school or non-school based organization. Middle school entries are due by March 17. High school entries are due by March 24. Learn more on the contest webpage.
