2019 ASU MLK Jr. Day essay and poster winners


Ellie Borst

As Martin Luther King Jr. Day approaches, so does ASU’s 34th annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration. 

This year, students across Arizona were encouraged to participate in the “Find Your Voice” campaign.

The purpose of the campaign is to share unique experiences and celebrate diversity in each other. 

Students were asked to submit essays, poems or hand-drawn posters based on their own idea of “leadership through service.” 

Out of hundreds of submissions from students in grades K–12, 24 winners were selected in four different grade categories. The winners will be honored during the ASU Dr. Martin Luther King Breakfast Celebration on Jan. 24.
