Two Escambia County High School (ECHS) students have created works of art as a part of the Alabama State Bar Association’s Law Day. Juniors Malik Deese and D’Andrey McCarthy made their posters as a part of an art competition added to the 2013 Law Day program.

U.S. history teacher Nancy Haddix organized the students’ entries and the school has had them framed and placed on display at ECHS.

Deese did his in paint with a central theme surrounding the Constitution, while McCarthy did his piece in pencil and made the face of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. the focus of the piece.

From a press release from the school, “The Alabama State Bar and the Law Day 2013 Committee have established a competition for students in grades K-12 in celebration of Law Day on May 2, 2013. This year’s theme is Realizing the Dream: Equality for All.

“Students could participate in essay, poster and social media competitions sponsored by the Alabama State Bar.”
