Five junior students in the Creative Arts and Design program at the Mahoning County Career and Technical Center have won a statewide multimedia contest put on by the Ohio Civil Rights Commision for their video on a reflection of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The students, and their families, will now be honored at a ceremony in Columbus later this month.

The contest was intended to encourage students to reflect upon King's life, philosophy, and impact on the Civil Rights Movement and present day America. It was meant to challenge students to think about how civil rights and diversity affect their lives and how they can continue the work of Dr. King in their own way. They were tasked to answer "What more can you do to continue Dr. Martin Luther King's fight for equality and justice?"

The students involved administrators, other students, and even the school resource officer in the video, which was played throughout the school building on Friday, Jan. 18. Avery Sandy, one of the students who made the video, said, "It was amazing how many students wanted to be a part of the video when they heard what it was about, We are so proud of how it turned out!"
