NORMAN — The deadline for the Oklahoma Bar Association’s annual Law Day contests has been extended to Thursday.

All Oklahoma students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grades can enter. Students can win cash prizes up to $500. Entry forms and full contest details are available on the OBA website at

The 2013 Law Day theme is “Realizing the Dream: Equality for All,” which celebrates the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech and the 150th anniversary of the Emancipation Proclamation.

Contests vary by grade level. Categories include a YouTube contest in which participants will create a video three minutes long or less incorporating the theme. The contest is open to all ages.

Also included are a coloring contest for pre-kindergarten, kindergarten and transitional first grade; drawing contest for first- and second-graders; creative writing contest for fifth through eighth grade; visual arts for sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders; and a creative free-for-all open to ninth- through 12th-grade students.

One $500 grand prize will be awarded to the best overall individual entry chosen from grades K-12. All students and teachers who participate will receive a certificate. Teachers also will be entered in a drawing for gift certificates. The OBA is accepting entry forms that can be found online.
