Each year on May 1st, the United States observes Law Day in celebration of our legal system and the freedoms we enjoy.

All submissions must be received by April 11, 2024. The winner will be announced on May 1, 2024. Review the contest rules for more information and complete the registration form to enter the contest. Registration forms and artwork may be submitted electronically or by regular mail.

Cash prizes courtesy of the Historical Society of the New York Courts will be awarded to first, second, and third prize winners.
