The mock trial program at Frontier High School has earned its students and faculty a civic learning award.

The award is co-sponsored by California Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye and California State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson.

Judith McConnell, presiding justice of the 4th District Court of Appeals in San Diego, said the award recognizes California public schools that offer courses or extracurricular activities that engage students in the democratic process.

“We think it’s important that our students understand our democracy because how can you be a good juror, voter or participant in the community if you don’t understand how our government operates?” McConnell said. “When the people stop caring about or engaging in their government, we will lose our wonderful democracy.”
