And how are the children?”

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Contest

Entries Due By December 5, 2018

The Martin Luther King Jr. Community Celebration is pleased to announce its annual “more than just an

essay” contest for children and youth.

This year’s Celebration theme is, “And how are the children?” This traditional Maasai* greeting is usually

answered, “All the children are well.” This is like “Hello. How are you?” and “Fine, thank you.” for us, but

rather than focusing on one person, the focus is on community. Dr. King was very interested in building

strong communities. What is necessary for everyone to be well and to thrive in your community? How are

we doing? What do we do not so well? What do we do well? How can we improve? Children in

Kindergarten - 12th grade are invited to consider and express their answer to the question “And how are

the children?” through an essay, painting, song, drawing, poem, or other art form.

Please make sure to include your name, school or phone number, and grade level. Entries will be assessed according to the following grade-level groupings: Kindergarten, Grades 1-2, Grades 3-5, Grades 6-8, and Grades 9-12.

Submit your entry no later than December 5, 2018 to:

MLK Contest

Webster-Rock Hill Ministries

111 E. Waymire Ave.

Webster Groves, MO 63119

The winner in each grade/category will receive funding for a $50 U.S. Savings Bond. The winning

entrants will be recognized Sunday, January 20, 2019 , at 5:45 pm at the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Community Celebration held at Steger Sixth Grade Center. In addition, each visual arts project and

essay will be available for viewing the night of the Celebration.

*The Maasai are a community of people in the country of Tanzania.
