Essay Receives Honorable Mention

The contest was open to all public high school students in Boston, Worcester, and Springfield, and attracted several hundred entries.
Adam’s essay was on the importance of an independent judiciary in safeguarding our basic rights, especially those contained in the Bill of Rights like the freedom of speech, press, and assembly, and right to a trial by jury. Adam’s essay was recognized at a virtual award ceremony that was held over Zoom last week from the Federal Courthouse in Boston.
