The Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service is a time set aside each year, where we as a country, work together, serving others, to make our communities more equitable. We annually observe this day each year on the third Monday in January. As the only federal holiday designated as a National Day of Service, MLK Day encourages all Americans to volunteer to improve their communities.
The theme for the City of College Park’s 2023 Tribute to Dr. King is the Urgency of Now: One Community, One Love.
The City of College Park is providing multiple ways our residents can honor Dr. King’s legacy on January 16th and throughout the entire month, including The Art, Visual Art, and Essay Competition. This contest is open to students in grades kindergarten through 12th who live in the City of College Park. Students must submit their entry by Friday, December 30, 2022. Winners will receive a monetary award and be recognized in the 2023 Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration.
