INDIANAPOLIS | The Indiana Civil Rights Commission will award a $500 college scholarship to the high school student who best shows how to promote equality.
Commission Executive Director Jamal Smith said students in grades nine through 12 can enter art, writing or multimedia that demonstrates the equality principles of the late Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.
"What we are asking students to do is to think about ways they can personally promote equality in their community, neighborhood or school," Smith said. "In essence, think like Dr. King."
Entries are due Jan. 8 and must be accompanied by the entry form available online at: in.gov/mlkihc/2352.htm.
