The Martin Luther King Jr. State Commission, which is part of the Governor’s Office of Minority Empowerment, is seeking artwork, essays and nominations for the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Citizenship Award.
Officials say the theme for the essays is Moving beyond the Dream to Brighten the Future.
The contest is open to kindergarten to 12th-grade students in Kentucky who would like to submit an essay or two-dimensional artwork that reflects a student’s most inspired King moment or speech.
Officials say the citizenship award will also be given to an individual who embodies the spirit and energy of the late civil rights leader and all winners will be recognized at the Martin Luther King Jr. Annual Celebration in Frankfort on Jan. 17th.
Artwork, essays and citizenship award nominations must be submitted by November 17th.
