The U.S. District and Bankruptcy Courts for the Central District of California are encouraging high school students to participate in the 2017 Ninth Circuit Civics essay and video competition (the “Contest”).
The theme of the Contest is “Not to be Forgotten: Legal Lessons of the Japanese Internment.” Students are asked to relate the legal history of the Japanese internment to current government efforts to protect the nation against terrorism. The focus is on constitutional conflicts that can arise when national security and individual rights are both at stake. Student winners will receive cash prizes and other recognition.
