The middle school Mock Trial competition is set for this Saturday, 4/18/2009 from 9 AM to noon at the Federal District Court (Horiguchi Bldg.).
This is a rollicking good time. Unlike the high school competition, which is very competitive and full of high emotions, this is all about pre-teens standing up in court, speaking, acting their parts, and demonstrating what they've learned. Everyone wins; there is no "judging" and no moving on to the next round.
If you've never seen this, I encourage you to go. And if you have, you don't need encouragement. You already know how good it is.
