Participating in the Clara Barton was an amazing experience.  They really mean it when they say to take the law out of the books.  I’ve discussed these issues in my classes, but it was a completely different (and incredibly valuable) experience to present, debate, and discuss these issues in real-world settings.  I learned so much – not just from my own preparation, but from the other teams, judges, coaches, and speakers.  If you’re considering participating in the Clara Barton – do it!

It was an absolute honor to represent my school at the Clara Barton Competition.  I had an incredible experience and learned so much from my peers during the weekend.”
