Young Pittsburgh Writers To Be Honored at Martin Luther King, Jr. Writing Awards Ceremony
Fourteen Pittsburgh-area high school and college students will be honored for their poetry and prose at the 2015 Carnegie Mellon University Martin Luther King, Jr. Writing Awards at 4:30 p.m., Jan. 19 in CMU's Rangos Hall.
Designed to encourage local students to reflect on their personal experiences with race and discrimination, the writing awards — now in their 16th year — is a mainstay of CMU's MLK Day celebration, which this year is expanding to include new events and programs throughout January and February.
