Bar Sponsors Video Contest for Students

The West Virginia State Bar and the West Virginia Department of Education have partnered to offer West Virginia students the chance to win as much as $1,000 for creating a three minute video on the theme "Righting a Wrong" which will be placed on YouTube.

The second place finishers win $500, while third place receives $250.


The contest, which is open to West Virginia public school students in grades 6 through 12, gives participants the chance to create a video about a wrong that they would right, an injustice they would correct, or something that they would remedy within the judicial system.


Judging will be broken into a high school and a middle school level. The creators of the first place videos also will be invited to attend The West Virginia State Bar's Annual Meeting on April 15 in Charleston.


Videos will be judge based on originality, creativity, adherence to the theme and overall quality. Entries must include a parental permission form for those under age of 18. Submissions will be accepted from Feb. 18 to April 1. For more information, contact Mike Frazier at the West Virginia State Bar at (304) 697-4370 or at
