Each year, the Martin Luther King Coordinating Committee sponsors competitions, which include an essay contest, a poetry contest, an oratorical contest and a music contest. The theme is centered on the teachings and philosophy of Dr. King.

Western Pines Middle School is proud that for this year’s essay contest, three of its students took the top awards: eighth-grader Andrea Davino in first place, seventh-grader Kiera Friedman in second place and eighth-grader Kennady Johnson in third place.
