Martin Luther King, Jr. Writing Awards Accepting Entries Through Nov. 30
Since 1999, Carnegie Mellon University has hosted the Martin Luther King, Jr. Writing Awards as part of its campus-wide celebration of Dr. King’s legacy. The program encourages high school and college students throughout the Pittsburgh area to talk about race and discrimination through poetry and prose.
Students are invited to share personal narratives about their experiences with racial and cultural differences or personal reflections on Dr. King’s legacy that rely on concrete detail.
