Law Day in Baltimore County
Baltimore County Circuit and District Courts took part in a Law Day celebration May 1 on the steps of the County Courts Building in Towson. Student winners of the art and essay contests were recognized before an audience that included more than 20 judges from the Baltimore County courts. The art contest was open to students from kindergarten-middle school; the essay contest was for high school students.
The entries for the essay and art contests focused on the 2013 Law Day theme, “Realizing the Dream, Equality for All.” Erin Caubo, 11th grade, Notre Dame Preparatory School, won first place in the essay contest. Patrick Hutson and Catherine Della Santina, both Towson High School 9th graders, earned second and third place, respectively. The art awards went to Courtney Robinson and Olivia Ruocco for K/1st grade; Mickey Robinson, 2nd/3rd grade; Sophia Ruocco, 4th/5th grade; Mokeira Nyakoe, 6th grade; Logan Young, 7th grade; and Trinity Bonner, 8th grade.
Entries for the student art contest were judged by Circuit Judge Justin J. King, District Judge Kimberly M. Thomas, and District Judge Michael T. Pate. Judge King presented the awards.
The Baltimore County Law Day event is organized by the Baltimore County Bar Association, which has hosted the event for several years.
