Katy Bar Association Law Day Competition and Scholarship Program

Each year the Katy Bar Association (KBA) sponsors a scholarship program for deserving students who will be continuing their education beyond high school graduation. This year, the KBA is combining our program with a State Bar of Texas’s 2018 Law Day Competition.

Although the State Bar of Texas (SBOT) compe tition includes three (3) events: editorials, photography and posters, the KBA program will be limited to only editorials. The competition theme is “Separation of Powers: Framework for Freedom.” The prompt for the editorial is: “Explain or depict why the separation of powers is important to preserving freedom.”

Law Day Essay Contest

Sixty years ago, in 1958, President Dwight D. Eisenhower established Law Day as a way to challenge Americans to understand how the rule of law impacts their lives and to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to participate in a democracy. The State Bar of Texas and the Texas young lawyers Association, as well as the Katy Bar Association, celebrate the importance of the rule of law and its impact on our nation and local communities by hosting a statewide editorial contest.  There will be awards for First, Second and Third place to be used for college and the contest is open to all students.  The deadline for ALL entries is March 20, 2018, and should reflect the student's interpretation of the 2018 Law Day theme by responding to the following prompt:

Explain why the separation of powers is important to preserving freedom

For essay contest rules and application forms, please come to the Counselor's Office.
