Alfredo Castellanos was appointed by Hon. Gustavo Gelpi to the Committee to evaluate essays from high school students through out the Mainland explaining what a fair and impartial federal judiciary means to them and to our nation.
Federal Judges Association Essay Contest is held in Celebration of the 225 Years of the Federal Courts and Article III of the U.S. Constitution.
Article III of the United States Constitution states that the “judicial power of the United States, shall be vested in one Supreme Court, and in such inferior courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish.”
Two hundred twenty five years ago, the First United States Congress passed the Judiciary Act of 1789. President George Washington signed the bill into law on September 24, 1789. This law created district courts and circuit courts of appeals throughout the new nation, and demonstrated the nation’s commitment to a fair and impartial federal judiciary.
This civics contest invites students to describe how the creation of an independent federal judiciary two hundred and twenty five years ago has shaped their lives and their communities.
