Celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day
Students invited to participate in Prodigies for Peace contest
Local students are invited to share their dreams for our country’s future. The city of Everett is currently accepting essays and art projects for the 13th annual Prodigies for Peace contest. Winners will be honored during a Martin Luther King Jr. Day celebration in January.
This year’s contest asks students to reflect on Dr. King’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech and to share their own vision for the future of the United States. The contest is intended to help students draw connections between the people and events that shaped the civil rights movement and the social issues that influence their lives today.
Students in grades 3-12 can submit essays about their dreams for the future and how those dreams could be achieved. Students in grades K-12 can also participate in an art and video contest by submitting drawings, paintings, sculptures or videos on this year’s theme.
All art and writing entries must be turned in by 5 p.m. Friday, Dec. 20, to the Everett Mayor’s office, 2930 Wetmore Avenue, Suite 10-A.
