2009 Poster Contest
The 2009 contest focused on the American presidential transition and asked students to consider the question: “If he were alive today, what would Dr. King most want our newly elected president to be concerned about?”
Consider today's national debates about changing many of America's existing policies and about the challenges the next president will face on a range of issues.It is reasonable to believe that, if he were alive, Dr. King would be an active participant in these debates. Thinking about Dr. King's general concern for humanity and his specific concerns for the poor and oppressed, we asked students to advise the new president of the United States regarding what should be done in the new administration to actively advance Dr. King's goals.
Students in grades 4 through 6 were invited to submit original posters.
