MLK Art Contest
All school districts are encouraged to have their students, grades K-12, participate in the celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day by using a visual medium to express Dr. King's ideas. The integration of art and history not only helps students apply and retain their knowledge of history, but also offers students with different learning styles an opportunity to succeed. Each school site may submit a maximum of 8 pieces of student work. Each participant will receive a certificate. Those judged Superior, Excellent, and Good will receive ribbons. Art work will be exhibited at the Clovis Veteran's Memorial Building from January 15th - February 17, 2015. The art reception will be held at the Clovis Veteran's Memorial Building on February 17, 2015.
