Coloring Contest Entries

Based on the ABA’s theme for 2017 of “The 14th Amendment: Transforming American Democracy,” students were asked to submit entries in either the coloring contest or original poster contest. Students in Pre-K through 2nd grade were asked to color a sheet of a judge and jury. Older elementary students were asked to fill in and color a sheet where three children were given unequal scoops of ice cream. Both coloring sheets were drawn by artist Courtney Strickland. Middle and high school students were asked to create an original illustration based on the ABA theme.

The contest, open to all private, public, and homeschool students in Georgia, was a success! Over 2,500 coloring sheets and 50 original posters were submitted for consideration from schools throughout the state.

The final decision will be determined on April 28 at the Judicial Council meeting in Savannah, GA. Finalists from each group will be invited to attend the August 9 Judicial Council meeting in Atlanta, GA. The top three entrants in each category will receive medals and be recognized by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Georgia. First place winners will also receive a $10 gift card.
