2022 Contest Winners

To honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and raise awareness about his accomplishments, the City of Bowie Diversity Committee sponsored the annual art contest for Bowie students.  Winners were announced during the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Art Contest virtual program on Saturday, January 15, 2022.  You may view the virtual program.

The theme for the 2022 contest was "More Than a Dream". This theme encouraged students to reflect upon Dr. King’s life, philosophy, and impact on the Civil Rights movement and present day America. It challenged students to think about how civil rights and diversity affects their lives and how they can continue the dream of Dr. King in their own way.
