19th Annual Cornshucker Challenge

On November 2-3, 2019, University of Iowa Mock Trial hosted the 19th Annual Cornshucker Challenge. This year's Cornshucker Challenge consisted of 16 teams, of which half were competitors at last year's National Championship Tournament (and the other half were ORCS teams). As has been the custom at the Cornshucker, no coaches had to serve as judges. Additionally, this year we provided free lunch to all students (pizza and salad on Saturday; homemade soups on Sunday). If you are interested in learning more about the tournament or possibly attending next year, please contact Jake Huebener at:
