Law Day Winner

I have to backtrack a bit, because I have missed some important stuff in our kids' lives. Last May Maddie won 1st Place at the Cochise County Law Day Poster Contest. She competed against approx. 50 schools in the county at the elementary school level. We went to Bisbee for a big ceremony where the State Treasurer, State Clerk, and Supreme Court Justices attended. The Supreme Court Justices were the judges for the contest. Students were to draw a poster based on a law that impacts their life at home, school, and community. Maddie's poster was about Littering. She even gave a brief speech about her poster. She said that she is concerned about littering because "Our world would otherwise be a trashy place to live in." She was so proud of herself and we are too.
