American Judges Foundation

                     

I am delighted to be the new President of the American Judges Foundation.

As you know, the American Judges Foundation is a nonprofit corporation formed for the purpose of promoting and improving the Judiciary and Justice by providing financial and other support to projects and groups that promote and promulgate these concepts directly or indirectly through education, scholarship and related programs.

In keeping with its tradition to promote judicial education, the American Judges Foundation provides members of the American Judges Association who, based on need, qualify for partial and full scholarships to attend courses at the National Judicial College. Moreover, the American Judges Association provides members whose jurisdictions have limited funding, scholarships for registration to attend educational programs at their Annual Educational Conferences.

In addition, the American Judges Foundation provides an annual essay competition for high school seniors in the host city of the Annual Conference on a topic concerning the promotion of justice and other civic related subjects. Winners are given awards and saving bonds.

As always, the American Judges Foundation supports other civic and educational organizations such as the Center for Civic Education program and their “We the People” program.

We hope to expand our efforts in the future by adding programs for judicial education as well as continue to promote programs for civic education for children and young adults.

We hope you will join the American Judges Foundation and assist us in our efforts to support and educate the judiciary.


JUDGE VINCENT L. JOHNSON
PRESIDENT OF AJF
