Books can teach a child a lot about American history, but there's no better way for them to learn than to engage them in their own writing to further their education in history and social science. The Fresno County Office of Education is once again holding its Martin Luther King Junior contest. Here’s how it works and how you can get your student involved in next year's contest.
Fresno County Office of Education provides support services to 34 school districts, serving approximate 200,000 students. The Fresno County Office of Education sponsors several special events such as the Martin Luther King educational contests. The MLK contests allow students authentic opportunities to further their education in history/social science and related core subjects by delivering speeches, writing essays, and or creating works of art. The events culminate with an art reception and program to honor the students and their work. The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Unity Committee co-sponsors the events, which will be held at the Fresno County Office of Education this year.
