Creative video entries score students scholarship prizes

High school students Elvis Guilamo, Mark Hurley and Kyle Peters received first place, second place and honorable mention respectively in the Massachusetts Bar Association's 2010 Law Day Video Contest. Guilamo and Hurley are from Lawrence and Peters is from North Adams.

The 2010 contest theme was "Diverstity in the Law." The winners received scholarship prizes for their creative and thoughtful entries. Submitted videos were judged by MBA President Valerie A. Yarashus; Norfolk Probate and Family Court Judge Angela M. Ordoñez; and WGBH-TV producer Jared Bowen.

This was the first year a contest of this nature was held by the MBA and was coordinated by the Law Day Committee, led by co-chairs Marc C. Laredo from Laredo & Smith LLP and Michael P. Sams of Kenney & Sams PC. Scholarship prizes were funded by the MBA's Diversity Task Force.

In addition to honoring Law Day, the contest supported the MBA's ongoing efforts to raise awareness of the legal system's important role in society as well as exposing students to the careers in law.
