Breaking Good Video Contest
Seeking Sponsors for Breaking Good High School Video Contest
The Legal Services and Programs Committee will host the sixth annual Breaking Good Video Contest for 2020. The video contest aims to provide an opportunity for New Mexico high school students to show their creative and artistic talents while learning about civil legal services available to their communities.

The LSAP Committee would like to invite a member or firm of the legal community to sponsor monetary prizes awarded to first, second, and third place student teams and the first place teacher sponsor. The video contest sponsors will be recognized during the presentation of the awards, to take place at the Legal Services & Programs Annual Conference, and on all promotional material for the video contest. If you are interested in sponsoring this event, please email Member Services at memberservices@nmbar.org
