Student Grant Recipients Total: 28
Award Amount: $195
This year's Edmonds Elementary 5th graders joined approximately 700 fifth-grade students from the Edmonds School District and participated in the 34th annual Law Day at Snohomish County District Court South Division in Lynnwood. The theme for Law Day this year was “Cornerstones of Democracy: Civics, Civility, and Collaboration."
EE STARS awarded the transportation cost $194.24, which are the only costs associated with this field trip.
Students were able to go into the courthouse for four events that help commemorate, educate and celebrate the legal system. These events that included:
a traffic safety presentation
a mock trial
a K-9 demonstration
a question-and-answer session with representatives from the Washington State Patrol
During the traffic safety presentation, kids were able to guess how fast an airbag inflates. (It’s about 240 mph.) Students were able to meet Harley, a scenting dog, who was adopted by police after abandonment as a puppy.
Law Day is a national event, held annually. These programs help students develop a deeper understanding of our legal system, foster a positive relationship between the students and law enforcement, and give students early exposure to career opportunities.
