Live judging is scheduled for Saturday August 14, 2021 at 2:30 PM. All competitors histories will be read to the public.
Should this inspire people to document a family favorite recipe to share with loved ones, we have accomplished our mission.
The Bicentennial of the Missouri Judiciary: A Celebration of Your Courts’ 200th Anniversary 1820 – 2020
Have gavel, will travel – or go virtual! Join us in celebrating our state’s third branch of government by inviting a local judge to speak with your school class or civic or community group about the history and development of Missouri’s courts. Two new presentations – one for younger students and one for older students and adults – celebrating the bicentennial of our state’s third branch of government can be presented virtually or in person. #MOCourts200 #Missouri2021
Teachers and others can find more information about presentation topics from the committee’s Discover Missouri Courts website.

The Missouri Community Service Commission challenges all Missourians to volunteer 200 hours in their community in honor of the state’s 200 years. Each year, volunteers give back over $3.2 billion in service to their communities, and we want to recognize those who are making a positive impact. Those who complete the 200 hours will be recognized for their service with a certificate of appreciation.
