This year we will be holding the Costello Reception Friday, January 31, 2020, at the American Legion in Fairfax.

The reception is a great opportunity for competitors from around the nation to meet and socialize with one another. It is also a chance to network with judges and attorneys who have volunteered their time to score the competition. Most importantly, the reception is where we will announce the teams who have advanced from the preliminary rounds into the quarterfinals. Food and drink will be provided.
