PERRYSBURG - The Court Law and Government Explorer Post sent four teams to district mock trial competition on Friday.
Two Perrysburg teams traveled to Findlay and two traveled to Bowling Green to compete against other high schools from Northwest Ohio.
More than 3,000 high school students entered courtrooms across the state prepared to take part in the Ohio Center for Law-Related Education's annual Ohio Mock Trial District Competition. Students assumed the roles of witnesses and attorneys and argued both sides of an original case based on a constitutional issue.
In this year's case, fictitious Philips High School agrees to license naming rights of its field to a large corporation. Students protest this action both in school and on the field. The school district responds by installing security cameras and searching the students' lockers. The students claim the school district has violated their rights under the First and Fourth amendments.
