In January and February, the African American Heritage Center sponsors the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Creative Art & Essay Contest for students (K-12) who attend Simpson County schools, churches, or who are homeschooled. Entry requirements vary by grade.
The winning submissions become the property of the African American Heritage Center. Cash prizes will be given to students in each category, and winners are honored at reception in March.
For more information, contact the AAHC by calling 270-598-9986 or stop by the center located at 500 Jefferson St.
