Maine students invited to participate in 2015 Law Day Art Contest

The American Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division is inviting Maine students to submit work to the 2015 Law Day Art Contest.

The Law Day Art Contest is open to high school students, student groups and classes attending a public or private high school, or being home schooled.

The 2015 contest theme is “Magna Carta: Symbol of Freedom Under Law.” Perhaps more than any other document in human history, the Magna Carta has come to embody a simple but enduring truth: No one, no matter how powerful, is above the law. In the eight centuries that have elapsed since Magna Carta was sealed in 1215, it has taken root as an international symbol of the rule of law and as an inspiration for many basic rights Americans hold dear today, including due process, habeas corpus, trial by jury and the right to travel.

Students are allowed to submit an art piece which may be represented in two-dimensions to be entered in the Law Day Art Contest. Students are encouraged to use their creativity and create art pieces in any medium desired including, but not limited to, drawings, paintings, films, photographs, graphic novels, comics, etc.  Please note artwork should be no larger than 11″ x 17″.
