This contest is designed to motivate high school students to excel in education. The Competition encourages students to express their views on a pre-selected topic and focuses on the ability of the students to communicate orally and in writing. The Competition is also designed to give young people experience in public speaking and reviewing legal documents as well as provide an opportunity for them to obtain some financial support to continue their education.
Essay Topic: "The #BlackLivesMatter movement was created in 2012 after Trayvon Martin was shot and killed by George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watchman. Zimmerman was acquitted. Many have criticized the #BlackLivesMatter movement for focusing on specific injustices done to African Americans, stating instead there should be an #AllLivesMatter movement.
If Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. were alive, would he argue that blacks should focus on the #AllLivesMatter movement to focus more globally and generally on all lives, or would he support the #BlackLivesMatter movement to focus more on black lives.
Please discuss why or why not."
Deadline to submit essay: April 30, 2016
