“Magna Carta: Symbol of Freedom Under Law” was the theme for Law Day 2015. High school students from both Cuba and Steelville participated in a special Law Day event sponsored by the Crawford County Republican Women’s group on Wednesday, April 15. Students traveled to the courthouse for a video presentation from Missouri Representative Jason Chipman on the theme and to hear from local county office holders on their particular roles within the county government.
A student from each school was also chosen as the winner of an essay contest based on the theme and awarded $100 by the Republican women. In Steelville, that student was Sophomore Drew Whittaker. His essay follows.
