Safeguarding Beloved Community
Minneapolis College is hosting a speech and performance contest
as part of its 2024 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. celebration.
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Minneapolis College students and high school seniors from Metro Area High Schools are invited to submit a 500 to 1000-word speech or performance piece in response to the following questions and prompt-
- What is “the drum major instinct,” and how does it distort personality?
- Where do you see contemporary examples of its negative influence? Why should these examples be the source of alarm?
- How does Dr. King’s “new definition of greatness” relate to our theme of Safeguarding Beloved Community?
Five \$1000 scholarship prizes to Minneapolis College will be awarded to Minneapolis College students and one \$1,000 scholarship prize to a High School senior from the Metro area. Prizes will be awarded in five categories: Best Argued, Best Researched, Most Impassioned, Most Creative and Most Relevant. Winners will be featured in MLK Day virtual celebration.
