Chattooga Kindergartner Places Second In State Competition

A bright future as lawyer, judge or US President may be in store for a Leroy Massey Elementary School student in Mrs. Rachel Groce’s kindergarten class!

Mason Teems, son of Chad and Brittany Teems, placed second in the statewide Law Day Coloring Contest.
In celebration of Law Day, the Judicial Council/Administrative Office of the Courts, Georgia Council of Court Administrators, and the Georgia Department of Education sponsored the statewide annual coloring/poster contest.

The contest was open to all private, public and homeschool students in Georgia. Mason’s submission was judged in the category of Coloring for Pre-K through second grade. A panel of judges and attorneys determined the semi-finalists and the final decision was determined on April 27th at the Judicial Council meeting in Athens. Three students’ artwork across the state were selected and each will receive a trophy from the Judicial Council Office of Courts.
Mason’s artwork depicts the three branches of government and the separation of powers. Mason will receive a trophy from the Judicial Council of Courts and will be recognized at the Chattooga County School Board meeting on May 17.
