The Dos Pueblos High School Mock Trial team, one of the most prestigious and fun activities at the high school, is offering a summer camp for incoming eighth- through 12th-graders.

The team has won the Santa Barbara County competition six of the past seven years and also placed second at the World Championships in 2012 and fourth in 2013.

The summer camp will be run by an experienced DP Mock Trial alum and former Teach for America high school teacher Nathanial Block, in conjunction with members of the varsity team. Campers will improve their public-speaking skills, learn how high school Mock Trial works, how to analyze a case, how to develop a witness' character, what the DP Mock Trial coaches will be looking for when tryouts for the team are held, and more.

There are two separate one-week camps held in the evenings of June 15-19 and June 22-26 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. on the Dos Pueblos High School campus. Each one-week camp will use a different legal case and set of facts. Students are welcome to attend a single week or both weeks of camp. The cost is $150 per week. Scholarships are available by contacting Dos Pueblos teacher Kelly Savio at [email protected].

Sign-ups are limited. Reserve your spot by completing the online registration form by clicking here.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
