The King County Civil Rights Commission invites all eighth-grade students to write essays about the legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

The top three writers in this 16th annual writing contest will receive trophies.

Essays should focus on the theme of voting rights and include ideas about Dr. King’s legacy of peace and justice.

King County’s 28th annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration is Jan. 15.

The essay must be between 750 and 1,000 words, and must be typed and doubled spaced on white 8.5-by-11 paper.

Contestants must submit one typed original essay and one copy of the essay, by mail.

To be considered, entries must be postmarked by Nov. 7 and mailed to the King County Civil Rights Commission, 401 Fifth Ave., Suite 135, Seattle, WA 98104.

The name, address, home phone number, email address, school, grade, and age of student author must be submitted on a cover page accompanying the essay. Do not place your name on any other page.
