Since 1999, Carnegie Mellon University has encouraged Pittsburgh-area high school and college students to write poetry and prose pieces about how discrimination has affected their lives. The winners of the writing awards receive cash prizes, have their work published and read their pieces as the centerpiece of CMU’s MLK Day activities.
