The Indiana Civil Rights Commission is now accepting entry forms for the 2014 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Art, Writing and Multimedia Contest. The third annual contest asks Indiana high school students to use art, writing or multimedia to demonstrate what they can do to promote equality.
One first place winner will be selected in each category, with an overall winner receiving a $500.00 college scholarship. In addition to the scholarship, the winning student will be asked to attend the 23rd Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Indiana Holiday Celebration at the Indiana Statehouse. At the program, the student will be honored with the Passing the Torch award from the Governor’s office.
The contest is sponsored by Indiana Black Expo, Inc., the Indianapolis Recorder and the Indiana Arts Commission. All entries must be received by January 8, 2014.
