Students challenged to produce videos on the topic of freedom of communication are being honored today by the TBA as a part of the national Law Day celebration. Middle and high school students from across Tennessee created three-minute videos exploring issues related to free communication as part of the second annual TBA YouTube Video Contest. Students were asked to examine one of several themes, including the value of an "invaluable" right; whether limits can, or should, be imposed on freedom of communication; whether there should be consequences for abusing freedom of communication; and how the concept of freedom of communication applies in a digital era. First place in the high school division went to Vivian Hughbanks of Signal Mountain and Ben Panak of Murfreesboro won the middle school division. Read more about the winners and watch their videos
