Jury Service Starts With YOUth

In March of 2022, Pierce County Superior Court completed a Public Service Announcement (PSA) video and photo shoot with local students from Silas and Stadium High Schools. The purpose of the PSA is to encourage juror service in the younger generation, in hopes we will build lifelong partners in this critical civic responsibility.

Based on data collected by the Court, the 18 to 29 years age group in Pierce County was responsible for 50% of the undeliverable summons and 41% of the summons that were not responded to. It was shown that 28-year old’s were the most likely to not respond to a summons.

The Court hopes you will share the videos and posters on your social media accounts to encourage participation in the jury process. If you have any questions about how you can help encourage the next generation of jurors, please feel free to reach out. Thank you for any assistance you can provide us.
