In celebration of Dr. King's birthday, the Brookings Human Rights Commission sponsors a poster contest for elementary students and an essay contest for middle school and high school students to help students reflect on Dr. King's ideas and their impact on the community.  This year's theme for the poster contest is "We may all have come on different ships, but we're in the same boat now."  The theme for the essay contest is "True peace is not merely the absence of tension, but the presence of justice."

Mayor Keith Corbett will present the winners with their awards at the City Council meeting on Tuesday, January 23, 2018, at 6:00 p.m.  All entries will be displayed on the City's website with the winning poster entries will also be displayed on the City's Government Channel (Swiftel and Mediacom Channel 9).

All contest entries are due December 6, 2017.
