Texas Bar Finds Justice on YouTube

Make a video, three minutes or less, capturing the promise of justice for all and post it to YouTube. That was the challenge to Texans issued by the State Bar of Texas in the first-ever bar association YouTube contest, Lone Star Stories: Texans on Justice. With the promise of $2,500 to the winning entry, 10 videos were submitted and posted to a special Texans on Justice YouTube group. This week, the winners were announced, and Texas Lawyer's Tex Parte Blog has the results:

Natalie Jordan of Dallas won the $2,500 prize in the age 18 and older category for her video, 'Texans on Justice.' Jordan, 24, graduated from the University of Texas in 2005 and is employed by Quin Mathews Films, a film company in Dallas. The Bar will present two $2,500 scholarships in the under-18 category. Brothers Raphael Chaumette, 10, and Alexandre Chaumette, 7, of Sugar Land won for their video, 'The Promise of Justice for All.' The two brothers are students at Sugar Land’s Commonwealth Elementary School. Huey Fischer, a 15-year-old sophomore at Rockport-Fulton High School, also won in the under-18 category for 'The Murder of Ima Bacon: A Tale of Justice in Texas.'

Entries were judged by Texas Supreme Court Chief Justice Wallace Jefferson, ESPN and Court TV Legal Analyst Roger Cossack, former Apprentice contestant Amanda Hill, Texas Music Office Director Casey Monahan, and Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst’s press secretary, Rich Parsons. See all the entries here.  My favorite: Like Justice for Chocolate.
