The Courtroom Artist Contest is open to students in grades 9 to 12, to allow artistically talented students the opportunity to participate in the mock trial program. Artists observe trials and submit sketches that depict actual courtroom scenes. Participants can be part of a team or enter on their own. Entries are judged by a panel of local artists and art educators.
After completion of the state contest, the top three artists receive cash prizes for their entries. Winning sketches are displayed at the offices of the Idaho Law Foundation and are reproduced for inclusion in the State Bar’s magazine, The Advocate. Press releases with results will also be sent to local and statewide media outlets.
