The Indiana Civil Rights Commission and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Indiana Holiday Commission will present the 22nd Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Indiana Holiday Celebration and Youth Summit Jan. 17. The commissions also have introduced an Art, Writing and Multimedia Contest for high school students and a Day of Service on Jan. 18.

More than 350 students from across the state, grades six through eight, will take part in the 22nd Annual Dr. King Youth Summit Jan. 17. Students will begin their journey in the Indiana State Museum where they will take part in interactive programming and listen to famous speeches by Dr. King. Students will then travel across West Street for the Statehouse program.

The Statehouse program, which is open to the public for no charge, is expected to bring together more than 500 students, state employees, local and state government officials, human rights agencies and Indiana residents from across the state to celebrate the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Gary Brackett, former Indianapolis Colts linebacker and philanthropist, will deliver the keynote address. There will also be remarks by a member of the Governor’s office and the presentation of four awards. The awards ceremony will be highlighted by the Passing the Torch award which will be given, along with a $500 college scholarship, to the winner of the Art, Writing and Multimedia Contest.

The Art, Writing and Multimedia Contest requires students to select a medium to highlight a community service project they are currently or have been a part of.
