2012 High School Essay Contest Explores Legal Complications of Cyberbullying

What are the legal ramifications for schools when students are victims of cyber bullying? Do parents bear the responsibility for their child's behavior? What is the appropriate course of action?
Virginia high school students are invited to submit essays that address those issues, for a chance to win the Law in Society Competition, cosponsored by the Virginia State Bar's Communications Committee, and its Litigation Section. The deadline for submissions is February 15, 2012.
All Virginia students aged 19 or younger and enrolled in grades 9–12 or a home-school equivalent are eligible to submit an essay that addresses the contest hypothetical on cyber bullying. The hypothetical is posted at
Essays are limited to 1,000 words, and are judged on how well they demonstrate the student’s understanding of the role and value of the legal system in everyday life. Entries will be judged by attorneys, judges, and educators. The purpose of the contest is to awaken an interest in law and appreciation of the U.S. Constitution.
The first place winner will receive $2,300 cash and their winning essay will be published on the VSB website. Other awards include $1,850 cash (second place), $1,350 cash (third place), and honorable mentions of $250 cash. All winners receive a plaque and copy of Strunk and White’s Elements of Style. Awards will be presented in May at the winners’ schools.
