2020 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Commemoration Projects

In celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the Carlisle MLK Commemoration Event Committee sponsored a creative project for grades 1-12 in the Carlisle Area School District. Students were encouraged to work independently or collaboratively on a project that spoke to this year’s theme: “Remember! Celebrate! Act! The Time is Now for Our Beloved Community.” Submissions included videos, posters, digital presentations, poems, scripts, public service announcements, essays, and 3-D art projects. Each highlighted submission received an award certificate and a monetary award and was recognized at the Carlisle MLK Commemoration Event on Sunday, January 19, 2020. Please enjoy perusing all submitted projects below!
