MLK Jr Essay Contest Flyer cover

Senator Murphy invites your students to participate in his Office’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. Essay Contest. We ask students from elementary, middle, and high schools from across Connecticut to participate in honoring the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. by submitting essays that reflect on Dr. King’s dream, their own aspirations, and the importance of what Dr. King means to them.

 Submissions are now open and must be received by January 12th. Essays can be submitted online or mailed to our Hartford office. Further information about the contest details can be found in the attached flyer. You are encouraged to distribute this flyer to your school community.

We look forward to reading and reviewing your student’s work! If you have any further questions, please contact Kay Muñoz at 860-549-8468 or email at
