At every mock trial competition, teams and individual members compete to win awards and earn recognition for their schools. Aside from trophies for the top-placing teams, individuals compete for recognition as an Outstanding Attorney or Outstanding Witness. One team will also win the Spirit of AMTA award for best demonstrating civility, justice, and fair play. At the end of the season, teams compete at regional competitions for a bid to the Open Round Championship Series (ORCS), and from there they will compete for a bid to the national tournament.
