In preparation for our community’s 25th annual celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, all Lakota students in grades K-12 are invited to participate in a contest that challenges students to interview an individual who lived through some part of the Civil Rights Movement.

Entries are due Nov. 21. Winners will share their entries with the public as part of the Jan. 15 community celebration.
