Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday Commission 2016-17 Contest Winners:

The Howard County Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday Commission will host the Annual  Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration on January 15, 2017. County Executive Allan H. Kittleman has recognized the importance of this event to our community by making the organizing group a permanent county commission. A highlight of the celebration is the award presentations to Howard County Middle School and High School students who are our essay contest winners.

Dr. King’s historic speech, “I have a Dream” (http://archives.gov/press/exhibits/dream-speech.pdf) remains as relevant today as it was in 1963. The Howard County MLK Holiday Commission invites your students to describe their dreams and vision for their world in their essay submission.

The essay theme for this year is: “Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. had a dream….What is yours?”
