On Law Day, May 1, 2012, the League of Women Voters of Spartanburg County, South Carolina, announced the conclusion of their judicial diversity media competition for area high school students, "PICTURE THIS: The 5 W's of Judicial Diversity — Who? What? When? Where? Why?"
"We wanted to give students the chance to learn about the importance of judicial diversity, so we asked them to explore visually the notion that a diverse judiciary is important to South Carolina because it instills in citizens confidence that the courts are fair and impartial," said Linda Bilanchone, chair of the project for the League of Spartanburg County.
All entries are available on the contest Facebook page. The winning students were featured in the Spartanburg Herald-Journal (online and print editions) during the week of May 28. Ceremonies were held concurrently at the students’ high schools, where they and their principals were presented engraved iPads.Carder Jones, The Scholars Academy/Dorman High School
