Dr. Martin Luther King Jr Poster/Essay Contest

MNEA Human Rights Committee sponsors 2021 contest

The Missouri NEA Human Rights Committee is sponsoring the 2021 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Essay-Poster Contest for K-12 public school students. "Fulfilling Dr. King's Dream: Reading to Lead and Transform" is the theme for the 2021 contest.

Winners are determined in five grade-level categories: K–1, 2–3, 4–5, 6–8 and 9–12. A certificate and gift card is awarded to each first-place ($50), second-place ($30) and third-place ($20) winner in the five categories. Teachers of winning students will receive a $25 gift card. 

An MNEA affiliated local association must host the initial contest and submit first-, second- and third-place winning posters (sized 11x17) in any or all of the five grade-level categories (up to 15 entries per local association). Entries achieving finalist status should then be mailed or hand delivered to Missouri NEA Headquarters, Attn: Roxane Bly, 1810 E Elm Street, Jefferson City, MO 65101.
