For Law Day (May 1), The Missouri Bar Young Lawyers’ Section is sponsoring an art contest for Missouri elementary school students. The theme for Law Day 2014 is "American Democracy and the Rule of Law: Why Every Vote Matters," commemorating the approaching anniversaries of the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. We encourage educators, parents and others to have students participate in these contests. Ideas for lesson plans to accompany the projects are available from the American Bar Association.

The art contest has two divisions, Kindergarten-Grade 2 and Grades 3-5. All mediums of art will be accepted including pencil drawings, water colors, oil paints, pen and ink, etc. Entries should be no smaller than 8” x 10” and no larger than a standard poster board.

  • Entries must be received by May 1, 2014.
  • Please include the entry form on the back of the entry. (Download the entry form here [PDF].)
  • Entries are limited to one per student in each contest.
  • Entries will not be returned unless requested prior.

All teachers who have their classes participate in the art contest
will be entered into a drawing for gift certificates.

All entries will be judged based on originality and interpretation of the theme. Winners will be announced May 12, 2014, with winning entries posted on The Missouri Bar’s website. Winning entries also will receive a certificate.
