Raising Funds and Honoring Judicial Excellence Since 2003

In 2003 CJI created the Judicial Excellence for Colorado Dinner to formally recognize the winners of the Judicial Excellence Awards as well as raise funds to support the Judicial Education Fund.

Hosted annually, the awards is one of only two fundraisers CJI hosts each year.  Companies, organizations and firms who sponsor tables at the event receive recognition at the awards and on the CJI website, and become a member of CJI for one year.  CJI also hosts numerous individual guests to the awards to help celebrate judicial excellence and support our mission of judicial excellence and education.

The funds raised at the awards support the judicial education fund, the Our Courts public education program, and the other activities of CJI.
