At Burg Simpson, we recognize the importance of access to a good education. In 2012, we launched our annual Scholarship Competition, encouraging seniors from across the state to write a 1,500 word essay about the importance of the civil jury system as the guardian of American rights and liberties. The competition is an exciting and important project in which we intend to participate in for many years to come.
