Please see the ideas we have put together at Most Important Points for Each Witness. These may be helpful.

Plaintiff Witnesses: 
Parker Smith is male while Johnson and Sanchez are female.

Our second competition will be on Friday, February 27.
Meet in the Administrative Conference Room -- go through the front office. 

Students should be at the school, ready to board the bus by 8:00 am.  Again the trial begins at 9:00 am and is scheduled to go until noon.
Again, if there is time, we may stop for lunch, so I encourage students to bring some money just in case.   We plan to be back at the school by 12:30.

  The location of the trial is Sandy Justice Court at 210 West Sego Lily Drive, Sandy.   Parking was easy last year, available right at the court house.

Bus Fare

This year we have found it necessary to charge the students a small amount for the buses.
The fee is $10 that will cover both competitions.  Our Administration is generously covering the rest of the cost.  All team members should pay the $10.   Thank you.
