A local Topeka High School Mock Trial team won a bid to the national tournament in Athens, Georgia. This is the only team in the Topeka-area and will allow the team to represent Topeka in a positive and encouraging light, something that the community would benefit from. We hope to use the success of the team to advocate for other local Topeka-area schools to start mock trial programs of their own. Funds raised will go toward round trip flights, hotels, and tournament fees. This is a wonderful opportunity for these students to compete against state winners and international teams.
