The Brookings Human Rights Commission has announced the winners of its 2020 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Poster and Essay Contest. Dr. King was a supporter of human rights and freedoms for all citizens. The contest is designed for students to reflect on Dr. King’s ideas and the effect on our community through their contest entry. This year’s theme from one of Dr. King’s quotes was “In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.”

The contest winners will receive their award recognition from Mayor Keith Corbett at the beginning of the City Council meeting on January 28 at 6 pm. The public is invited.

The poster contest was conducted for Camelot Intermediate School students. All of the poster entries are on display in the Brookings Public Library until February 3. The entries can also be viewed on the BHRC page on the City’s website:(www.cityofbrookings.org), and the City’s Government Channel (Mediacom and Swiftel Channel 9).
