The Ohio Civil Rights Commission is pleased to announce our annual statewide 2008 Martin Luther King, Jr. Art, Writing & Multimedia Contest. The purpose of this contest is to enhance cultural awareness, empowerment, tolerance, and to honor and encourage leadership for a multi-cultural society. Through the example of major role models, such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., students creatively interpret these teachings through art, writing, and multimedia. We believe that it is important that the lessons and beliefs that affect students today will encourage them to be leaders for diversity for tomorrow.
What the students see at first as a "contest" is actually a youth leadership development program. The contest serves as a point of entry for the students and the work and thoughtfulness required to complete the project provides a learning and reflective experience. The winners will be honored by community and business leaders at an event that will take place during the month of February 2008 in the state's Capitol. Further, their artwork, essays, and multimedia projects will be proudly displayed throughout the year.
