This weekend Ashley White and I drove down to the Benton County Courthouse in Kennewick, Washington (the Tri Cities) to judge local high school trial teams in their mock trial regional finals.
I participated in two mock trials and was able to give (what I at least thought was) constructive feedback to the participants and to give them numerical scores for their respective roles in each trial. Boy were we amazed at the talent we saw this weekend. Some of these kids (or young adults, if you prefer) are absolutely rising stars and far more advanced in their goals for the future than I ever was at their ages.
Thank you to everyone involved, especially Judge Burrowes. It was a great time and we will surely be back next year. Here is a link to the KNDO.com article about the event:
