Individually different, united as one


The objective of the K-12 Student Essay/Poetry and Poster contest is to capture Dr. King’s legacy in word and art. ASU will host its 38th annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. celebration on January 19, 2023. A highlight of the celebration is the recognition and awards ceremony for Arizona K-12 students who are winners of the statewide essay and poster contest.

First place essay winners read their work at the celebration – and for the poster winners – their art is transformed into bookmarks that all guests receive at the celebration.
