The Bay Area is home to the unbelievably talented Golden State Warriors and the fast-rising Oakland Raiders. But there are few juggernauts that can match the unparalleled success of the Tam High Mock Trial team, which has one countless Marin County, statewide and even national competitions over the past 20-plus years.

Because it’s a club, the Mock Trial Team does not receive any funding from Tam High, so the students need to raise all the funds themselves for travel. With that in mind, Mock Trial team members will be volunteering at this Sunday’s Winterfest celebration, helping kids down the sledding hill and handing sweet treats from Mill Valley Baking Company and hot chocolate and accepting donations. Founded by Mill Valley resident Kristin Silmore, Mill Valley Baking provides healthy snacks and delicious desserts for parties, school functions, corporate events, retail outlets and daily after school treats for the Mill Valley community and beyond. You can find their treats locally at Juice Girl Mill Valley.

Swing by the Mock Trial Team table at Winterfest and find out more about Tam’s nationally recognized mock trial program that engages freshmen through seniors with the law and criminal justice system and serves as a venue for gaining leadership and public speaking skills. Support these local students – the winning-est team at Tam! MORE INFO.
