Canyon HS Mock Trial Team
Organized by: David Heck
Though they have never even sat on a jury, our students are already training to look and sound like professional trial attorneys, convincing witnesses, polished bailiffs and clerks, and more. To accomplish this, the Mock Trial team works very hard several times a week often until after 5 o'clock to prepare to present a simulated court case in front of an actual judge. They will work for months to perfect their roles and to offer a realistic representation of courtroom proceedings, under the guidance of their coaches, advisor, and fellow team members. The team needs a substantial amount money just in order to be able to compete. The expenses include the registration fee for two teams ($2200) as well as school buses to provide transportation to the events (approx. $500). With any extra money, we would like to be able to purchase team apparel and/or individual trophies to recognize outstanding performances. With your donation, the students on Mock Trial will be one step closer to taking part in this one-of-a-kind experience.
