On April 25, 2012, Sandberg Phoenix hosted the National Bar Association’s Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Drum Major for Justice Advocacy Competition. Sandberg Phoenix, along with the Mound City Bar Association, served as sponsors of the local event.
Sponsored by the National Bar Association and supported by the National Bar Institute, the competition is an annual advocacy program–and one of the signature programs of the NBA–designed to motivate students of color to excel in education. The contest encourages high school juniors and seniors to express their views on a pre-selected topic, judges the students on their ability to communicate orally and in writing, while allowing them to sharpen their skills in public speaking.); ?>
