Gib Walton, State Bar of Texas president, on Jan. 22 announced the winners of the Bar’s YouTube video contest, “Lone Star Stories: Texans on Justice.” Natalie Jordan of Dallas won the $2,500 prize in the age 18 and older category for her video, “Texans on Justice.” Jordan, 24, graduated from the University of Texas in 2005 and is employed by Quin Mathews Films, a film company in Dallas. The Bar will present two $2,500 scholarships in the under-18 category. Brothers Raphael Chaumette, 10, and Alexandre Chaumette, 7, of Sugar Land won for their video, “The Promise of Justice for All.” The two brothers are students at Sugar Land’s Commonwealth Elementary School. Huey Fischer, a 15-year-old sophomore at Rockport-Fulton High School, also won in the under-18 category for “The Murder of Ima Bacon: A Tale of Justice in Texas.” The winners will receive their awards at a Jan. 25 event scheduled in conjunction with the State Bar board of directors’ meeting in Grapevine. The contest, which drew 10 video entries, is a highlight of the State Bar’s “Let’s Do Justice for Texas” public education initiative this year.
