The TBA Young Lawyers Division has announced this year's Law Day Art & Essay Competition winners. Winchester eighth grader Jonathan M. Brewer from South Middle School took first place in the art contest, while Knoxville 10th grader Caroline Julie Rogers of Bearden High School won first place in the essay contest. This year’s theme "Realizing the Dream: Equality for All,” asked students to explore civil and human rights movements in America and the impact they have had in promoting the ideal of equality under the law.

Other winners were Jackson Ahern, a fourth grade student at Cedar Bluff Elementary School in Knoxville, who took second place in the art competition; Zee Marie Schumacher, a fourth grader at Immaculate Conception School in Clarksville, who placed third in the art contest; Savannah Oliver, a junior at Forrest High School in Chapel Hill, who won second place in the essay contest; and Delaine Lorio, a ninth grader at Tennessee High School in Bristol, who took third in the essay contest. Winners will receive cash awards and have their work displayed at the TBA Convention in Nashville, June 12-15. This year's competition was coordinated by Chattanooga lawyer Ellie Hill with Patrick, Beard, Schulman & Jacoway.
