About Let Freedom Ring
Since 1983, Clark County Law Foundation's (CCLF) Let Freedom Ring committee has honored individual(s) in the community who have upheld the rule of law, contributed to good government within the community, stimulated a sense of civic responsibility, and encouraged respect for the law in the courts with its prestigious Liberty Bell Award.
Why the Liberty Bell? No icon better personifies the struggles in the birth of our nation. The Liberty Bell tolled on July 4, 1776, for all to come to Philadelphia's Independence Hall to hear the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence.
The Liberty Bell exhibit at the Historic Fifth Street School was the first phase of CCLF's long-term Let Freedom Ring project that will display public art exhibits designed to reflect on significant moments in our jurisprudence along Lewis Avenue between the Clark County Regional Justice Center and the Lloyd D. George U.S. District Courthouse.
Expanding on CCLF's mission to empower Nevada, especially our youth, through service to the community and education about the legal system and its history, CCLF invites all Clark County students, K-12 to participate in its annual Let Freedom Ring Art Contest.
CCLF's Let Freedom Ring Art Contest provides a wonderful opportunity for students to learn about our legal system, justice, get creative and win prizes. The contest can be incorporated into a curriculum, offered as extra credit, or just done for fun.
