MLK Statewide Oratorical Contest expands into three new regions

The Ohio Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday Commission has some exciting news to share! The MLK Statewide Oratorical Contest is growing! The 2018 contest will mark the 19th anniversary of the statewide oratorical contest. This year we have expanded into three new regions, growing the number of young people who are learning about, thinking about and speaking about Dr. King and continuing his legacy. If you are in Akron, Cincinnati or Dayton, please contact our new regional coordinators listed below.

  • Akron: Rosheadra Edwards and Dr. Constance Longmire (rosheadra@gmail.com; drcjlongmire@gmail.com)
  • Cincinnati: Althea Barnett (altheac.barnett@cincinnati-oh.gov)
