Calling all young and aspiring writers! The City of Irving is hosting an essay contest in conjunction with the city’s annual Martin Luther King, Jr. observance Jan. 16.

During his life, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. has inspired generations with his words and voice as an activist for equality. The essay contestants are encouraged to use inspiration from Dr. King with the theme, “Reaching the Mountain Top.” The essay should be no more than one page or 500 words. Essays will be accepted through the city website from Dec. 8-Jan. 4.

The essays will be judged based on clarity, grammar and how well the theme is developed based on the writer’s age. The contest age categories are:

  • Grades 3-5
  • Grades 6-8
  • Grades 9-12
