Participation Credit

A special component of the Bar Foundation Feloows program is that contributors can earn at least 25% credit towards a Fellows level by participating in certain Bar Foundation sponsored events, such as the Missouri High School Mock Trial Competition, Motion for Kids, and others.

Events eligible for Participation Credit will be clearly labeled, and participation in the event will count as a $100 towards achieving the next Fellows level, subject to certain limitations.
