YLD Fall Hike and Photo Contest

The CBA YLD's Local Bar Outreach Committee recently hosted a multi-county hike and photo contest to bring together young lawyers from across the state. YLD leaders met up with fellow young attorneys for socially distanced hikes in El Paso, Mesa, and Larimer counties. The goal was to get young lawyers safely outdoors to enjoy the fall colors and to provide a platform for the community to see the same wonderful views. Lawyers who were unable to attend the group hikes were encouraged to submit photos from their own independent trips.

The committee was blown away with the photo submissions and thanks all the young lawyers who entered. Contest winners were (1) Andrew Shiverly, ProctorBrant, PC; (2) Kayley Rettberg, DU Sturm College of Law; (3) Abigail Asad, DU Sturm College of Law; and (4) Spencer Rubin, Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner, LLP. Enjoy their beautiful fall shots, and stay tuned for future YLD-sponsored photo contests!
