Congratulations to West Side Montessori Middle School students Sadie Kaplan (8th), Claire Kohler (7th), and Madalyn Vesoulis (7th), who won first, second and third place, respectively, in the Toledo Bar Association annual Caty Armstrong Memorial Law Day Essay Contest for 7th and 8th grade students.
The theme of the 2013 essay was “Realizing the Dream: Equality for All.” The contest required a 500-word essay examining the topic of what constitutional rights, privileges and protections, such as due process, should be afforded to legal and illegal immigrants. All three students, their parents, and Middle School teacher, Mary Brandon, will attend the Toledo Bar Association’s Law Day luncheon on Friday, May 3, at the Best Western Premier Grand Plaza Hotel.
Sadie’s first place essay will also be published in the The (Toledo) Blade.
