Prizes will be awarded to the top team. Judges and Justices from the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania, the Superior Court of Pennsylvania, the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania, the United States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania, the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania, and the Court of Common Pleas of Allegheny County are invited and a great response is expected again this year.
