He may have died decades ago, but folks in Siouxland are still trying to keep the inspiring spirit of Martin Luther King Jr. alive. And what better way, than using art to do it?
The Sioux City Human Rights Commission's held its first ever "Your Voice, Your Power, Your Decision" Martin Luther King Jr. contest.
The instructions make something that honors the life and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.
The Commission received over 100 submissions, but only 3 people could be the winners in their individual age groups.
The winning submittals included a drawing, a painting and piece of writing.
Here's descriptions from the artists' themselves.
High School Winner Tommy Thelen said, "I drew Martin Luther King kind of sleeping and dreaming and at the top it says 'He had a dream, do you?' and then it had the world with everyone holding hands."
"You can go to the least common denominator but you end up with things like rage and anger and discrimination down there but you will always grow and become lighter as things go along," said Adult Winner Beth Hulett.
Elementary School Winner Jazmin Mosqueda Hernandez said, "I made a writing with three paragraphs and one of them was what the word 'remarkable' meant to me."
The winning pieces will be on display at the Sioux City Public Museum through the end of the month.
