Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye and Court of Appeal presiding justices visited nine elementary, middle, and high schools this spring to present them with Civic Learning Awards. The personal participation of bench leaders at these lively events reflects their commitment to inspire future leaders and help educators prepare engaged civic participants of all ages.

The Civic Learning Awards, now in their fourth year, are co-sponsored by Chief Justice Cantil-Sakauye and the State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson. The awards are generously supported by a grant from the California Bar Foundation.
