On Saturday, April 13, 2019, HEB Teen Court hosted the Texas Teen Court Competition held at G.A. Buinger CTE Academy in Bedford. There were a total of 16 Teams representing 11 Teen Courts that participated. The out of town teams stayed at the brand new, fantastic Home2 Suites DFW West (1916 Forest Ridge Dr.). There were 4 rooms with 3 rounds and the 2 top scoring teams competed in a final round.
Mayor Griffin was present to welcome everyone to Bedford and Judge Murphy was present to announce the judges. There were local judges and prosecutors who volunteered on their Saturday to be “Judges” for the event. For the FINAL round there were 3 new “Judges” present: Chief Judge of City of Ft. Worth, Danny Rodgers, Tarrant County District Attorney Sharen Wilson, and Luvenia Sanchez, Attorney at Law, Dallas County.
The top 2 teams in the final round were from Georgetown Teen Court and Allen Teen Court with Georgetown winning 1st place.
Thank You to HEBISD for allowing the use of the building and a HUGE Thank You to SRO Officer Mark Tooley for being there VERY early and providing the security and access into the rooms for us all day!
