The Indiana Mock Trial program needs volunteers and contributions to help with the 2013 National High School Mock Trial Championship.
For the first time ever, Indiana will be hosting the national championship. More than 500 high school students along with 1,500 spectators from across the country will come to Indianapolis May 9-11.
Volunteers are needed to judge the national competition as well as regional and state competitions within Indiana. Regional rounds will start Feb. 9 with the state championship following March 2 and 3. Organizers say judging at the regional and state level is a good way to prepare for participation in the national championships.
To volunteer for the regional and state rounds, visit inmocktrial.org and click on the Competition button. Look for the Volunteer Judge Form in list of “Competition Information, Materials and Forms.” To volunteer for the 2013 national championship, click on the 2013 National tab on inmocktrial.org, then select the online registration system.
Monetary donations to help support Indiana’s hosting of the national championship can be made to the Indiana Bar Foundation. When making a contribution either by check or online at www.inbf.org/in_mock_trial_2013, donors are asked to be sure to make a notation that the contribution is specifically for the 2013 NHSMTC tournament.•
