20th Annual Cornshucker Challenge

On November 7-8, 2020, University of Iowa Mock Trial hosted the 20th Annual Cornshucker Challenge. This year's Cornshucker Challenge consisted of 20 teams; half of which qualified for the National Championship Tournament in 2019 or 2018 and every team qualified for ORCS in 2019 or 2018. Of the teams, 30% competed at the 2021 National Championship Tournament and 85% competed at ORCS. As has been the custom at the Cornshucker, no coaches had to serve as judges. We made the most of zoom mock trial to have a diverse field of teams and judges from all across the country. If you are interested in learning more about the tournament or possibly attending next year, please contact Jake Huebener at: [email protected]
