Kudos to the hard working students of Indian Hill High School in Cincinnati who for the second straight year won the High School Mock Trial State Championship last week and will now advance to the national championship tournament this spring in Philadelphia.
We will all be pulling for them because if they succeed, Indian Hill will become the first Ohio team to win the national title.
Established in 1983 by the Ohio Center for Law-Related Education (OCLRE) as a statewide educational program, the Ohio Mock Trial Program is designed to help students become aware of their constitutional rights and responsibilities. Sponsors of the OCLRE include the Supreme Court of Ohio, the Ohio Attorney General’s Office, the Ohio State Bar Association and the American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio Foundation.
For those unable to watch the final round live pitting Indian Hill against Sylvania Southview High School on the Ohio Channel on Saturday, it will be rebroadcast on the following days and times:
•At 1 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Thursday, March 18; Saturday, March 20; Friday, March 26; and Sunday, March 28
•At 5 a.m. on Friday, March 19; Sunday, March 21; Saturday, March 27; and Monday, March 29
Congratulations to these champions on a job well done and good luck in Philladelphia!
