The committee is led by Aiken Technical College (ATC) and the University of South Carolina Aiken (UofSC Aiken), the presenters of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Celebration held annually in January.

The committee is also accepting entries for its annual contest for Aiken County public, private, and homeschool students in kindergarten through 12th grade. Contest entries are also due by November 12.

There are three available categories: creative visual poster, essay, and multimedia. Full details for each category are available in the attached contest guideline document.

The creative visual poster category is open to students in kindergarten through fifth grade. Participants should create artwork related to the question “What does the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day mean to you?”

Essays for middle school students may be up to 1,000 words in length and up to 1,500 words in length for high school students.

This year, the committee added a new multimedia category open to students in kindergarten through 12th grade. Participants are asked to answer the question, “What is the legacy of Dr. King?” in a video up to three minutes in length.
