The Oyster-Adams Pan African Parent committee is hosting their 2nd annual Black History Month student essay contest. In honor of Martin Luther King Jr., the essay prompt will be centered on him and his “I Have a Dream” speech.
Next month, students in grades 2-8 will be provided with an age-appropriate essay prompt from their English Humanities teacher. While the students will start the essay in class, they will need to spend some time over the February break to finish it. Once students return from the break, they will have the opportunity to share their essays.
The best essays will be recognized at the Pan-African Night on March 1. We hope this will facilitate discussions about the life and times of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the progress we’ve made so far, and how we continue to strive to achieve his dream.
