Pin Exchange and Tailgate Party

Begin the 2014 National High School Mock Trial Championship with a classic Wisconsin tailgate at the Concourse hotel on Thursday, May 8 from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. In Wisconsin, cheese heads can be found tailgating in below zero conditions. Fortunately, May should boast warmer temperatures and juicier bratwursts, as well as a performance by the renowned UW-Madison Marching Band. This is also the time when teams exchange special items from their home state with the other competitors, so don't forget to bring something for everyone. The event is open to NHSMTC participants, volunteers, observers and friends. Tickets are $25 per person for all non-official team attendees.

Costume Contest, Trivia and Ice Cream Social

Join fellow competitors at the Concourse Hotel on Friday, May 9 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. for a night of drop dead fun. Not only will this be a brainy bash with a surprise twist on traditional trivia, but a chilling night of enjoyment with heaping amounts of ice cold custard fresh from the Dairy State. Stay for one round of trivia or the entire evening. Either way, don't forget to terrify the judges with a heart-stopping costume to bring home a prize in this year's costume contest. The event is open to NHSMTC participants, volunteers, observers and friends. Tickets are $15 per person for all non-official team attendees.
