As the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania prepares to celebrate its 300th anniversary next month, students across the state are invited to participate in the historic occasion by participating in an essay and coloring contest.
Both contests are free and open to Pennsylvania students including those in public, private, charter, cyber-charter or home school. The deadline for entries is May 6, 2022. Please see the attached flyers for more information.
The coloring contest is open to all students ages 5-11 and will give young students the opportunity to create their own judge. After printing the cartoon judge cutouts, students can choose which judge they want to color and design using their creativity as their guide.
Students and parents are encouraged to submit photo entries on Twitter by tagging @PACourts and using #Supreme300, or by mail following the instructions outlined below.
The essay contest is open to all students in grades 3 through 12, with essays being judged on creativity, overall quality and adherence to the questions:
Question (Grades 3-5) – Why is the Pennsylvania Supreme Court important?
Question (Grades 6-12) – Which Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice inspires you and why?
Essay entries can be submitted by email to CommunicationsOffice@pacourts.us or by mail to:
