Two Voorheesville Central School District students are among a select group to be included in the “2023 Empire State Plaza Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Fine Arts and Essay Exhibition.”
Each year, the New York State Education Department invites submissions of original artwork and essays that reflect Dr. King’s teachings. This year’s projects focused on Dr. King’s Six Principles and Steps of Nonviolence.
“Each year, as we celebrate Dr. King, we need to remember and reflect on all the lessons he offered the world and pay tribute to his enduring legacy,” according to State Education Commissioner Betty A. Rosa. “New York students of all ages have used their unique artistic talents to create a moving tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King’s dream of an America of equality, community, and peace.”
