Tufts Mock Trial Winter Invitationals
Tufts Mock Trial is a program of 32 dedicated and passionate students who spend several hours every week collaborating and competing together. Mock trial is how students find their voice, explore their creativity, and make lifelong friends.
Our student-run program has grown tremendously in size and prestige over the past 2 years and last year we were named 6th in the nation (out of over 700 teams, many of whom are professionally coached.) This fall alone our teams have taken home 1 first-place trophy, 2 second-place trophies, and 13 awards for outstanding individual competitors. Because of these recent successes, we have been invited to the 2 most prestigious Winter invitationals: NYU's "The Downtown" and Georgetown's "Hilltop Invitational."
All of the nation's most successful teams compete at these tournaments; they are a necessary part of remaining a top-tier program throughout the year. However, because this level of success is so new to Tufts, we do not yet have the funding in place for the travel associated with these events.
We at Tufts Mock Trial believe that opportunities should not be limited to those who can afford to pay out-of-pocket for transportation and hotel rooms in New York and DC. Your donation would go to finance these costs and to keep Tufts Mock Trial competitive and equitable.
We thank you in advance for your generosity.
