One More Week For Students To Enter MLK Human Rights Contest

The deadline for students to enter the Martin Luther King Jr Human Rights Contest is Dec 21, 4 pm. This year the Golden Valley Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Commission chose Inclusion and Equality/Justice as themes for the contest.

The contest is open to students in grades Pre-K–12 who live in Golden Valley, attend a school in Golden Valley, or attend a Robbinsdale Area District or Hopkins District school.

Pre-K–Kindergarten (Theme: Inclusion)

  • Quote: “We cannot walk alone.”

Grades 1–12 (Theme: Equality/Justice)

  • Quote (grades 1–3): "If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way."
  • Quote (grades 4–7): "Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into a friend."
  • Quote (grades 8–12): "The ultimate measure of a person is not where they stand in moments of comfort and convenience, but where they stand at times of challenge and controversy."

Students may enter any creative submission that exemplifies the themes and quotes above, including, but not limited to: artwork, poetry, videos, songs, raps, or essays. Audio or video entries can be submitted through YouTube or other multimedia platforms.

Cash prizes may be given to up to two students in each grade range: Pre-K–Kindergarten, 1–3, 4–7, and 8–12. Winners will also be recognized at the Sweet Potato Comfort Pie event Jan 15, 2023 at Brookview.
