Martin Luther King Art Contest
To honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and raise awareness about his accomplishments, the City of Bowie Diversity Committee sponsors an annual art contest for Bowie students. * The categories of the contest differed depending on the grade of the students, but all are intended to teach students about Dr. King’s legacy. 

The contest theme for 2014 was "My Reflections on Dr. King's Dream.”   

Finalists were recognized on Saturday, January 18 at noon at the City's annual tribute to Dr. King. Winners will be announced in February and honored at a City Council meeting.

For more information about the 2014 contest, pcontact Una Cooper, Staff Liaison to the Diversity Committee at or 301-809-3032.

Congratulations to all of our contest finalists. The artwork for the coloring and poster contest finalists can be viewed in the MLK Slideshow. The videos can be seen at the links below.
