It is that time of year again! This is the fourth year that we are having a high school essay contest as part of the Pro Bono Celebration to be held on October 27, 2016. Every year has been a success so far, so let’s keep it going! Please feel free to distribute the attached entry form and essay contest flyer.

As in the past years, we are looking for volunteers from the DLSP committee to (1) be preliminary judges, and (2) follow up with the schools to help spread the word about the essay contest (we need the most help with this). Please let me know if you can assist. Thank you!!!

Preliminary Judges
We would like to have at least 18 preliminary judges, so please let me know if you are willing to be one. I know that some of you have already expressed your willingness, but please confirm.

Follow Up With Schools
We have already e-mailed and mailed the essay contest packet to all of the principals, and we have also e-mailed all of the teachers whose students submitted essays from 2013-2015. However, it would be great if we had at least 10 volunteers to follow up directly with the schools and their administration/teachers to make sure that they received the essay contest packet, since entries are due by September 22, 2016. Attached is a list of the ~100 high schools from across the state. In particular, we are looking at encouraging neighbor island participation, so it would be great if the neighbor island attorneys could assist with the calls. Thanks to Derek, Lynda and Scott for volunteering so far!
