Release Date: 12/15/2009 2:33:44 PM
Students in grades 4-12 are invited to participate in the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Writing Contest. This year’s theme is The Beloved Community – Our Shared Responsibility.
All forms of written expression – poems, essays, scripts, songs, etc. – are welcome as they relate to the theme. Students should demonstrate an understanding of their commitment to continuing Dr. King’s dream by sharing a reflection of something they have done that has made a difference in their communities and in their own lives. Students who are interested in submitting an entry should speak with their school’s Education That Is Multicultural (ETM) Teacher Liaison for information on contest rules and deadlines.
The Martin Luther King, Jr. Writing Contest is sponsored by the McDaniel College Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs, the Carroll County Public Schools Department of Minority Achievement and Intervention Programs, the Carroll County Chapter of the NAACP, the Carroll County Times, and the MLK Celebration Committee. Contest winners will be recognized at the annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration on Monday, February 1, 2010, at 5:30 p.m. in the Forum at McDaniel College.
