Connecticut Bar Foundation Scholarship: 

The Connecticut Bar Foundation is pleased to announce the Eighteenth Annual James W. Cooper Fellows Quintin Johnstone Essay Contest.  The 2018-2019 topic is “Jumping the Gun – Preventing School Violence”.  As in past years, this year’s topic was chosen for its special relevance to students of high school age.  We believe that participating students will find the topic pertinent and interesting. 

“Jumping the Gun – Preventing School Violence” deals with two student brothers, one a popular jock, and one a social outcast who are seen on a viral video shooting at a gun range.  The school gets word of the video and decides that the video shows that the social outcast brother is a threat and suspends him.  The popular brother is not suspended, despite participating in the same activity. Contest entrants are asked to assume the role of the attorney representing the School Board, which has asked for advice on whether the suspension of the outcast brother was proper and what steps the school can take to prevent school violence, while respecting constitutional rights.  Entries are not to exceed 1000 words and should support their position on this issue.

The contest winner will receive $2,000 and the two runners-up will receive $1,000.  The winning students, school contest coordinators, and principals will receive award plaques which will be presented at a ceremony presided over by Connecticut Supreme Court Justices at the Connecticut Supreme Court
