Individual honorees at the state competition included 8th grader Liam Quan and 7th grader Nicole Craft, who both received two Judges Awards for Best Attorney; and 8th grader Taylor Smith and 6th grader Lou Christian, who were each cited twice by the judges as Best Witness. Quan, Craft, and 8th grader Elizabeth Burns were chosen by their peers as Best Attorney, while Christian and 7th grader Cam Taylor got nods from their peers as Best Witness.
