Six high school student artists participate in New York State 2022 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Student Art & Essay Exhibition

Congratulations to six high school art students who participated in the recent New York State 2022 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Student Art & Essay Exhibition!

The work of Sarah Addo, Keira Davis, Alyssa Gale, Kaeli Killenberger, Rebecca Skye and Anijah Williams were among the hundreds of pieces submitted.

Keira’s artwork was one of only six pieces from all submissions to be given a special feature recognition in the exhibit!

Each year, the New York State Education Department honors Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s memory by inviting schools to submit original student artworks and essays that reflect Dr. King’s Six Principles and Steps of Nonviolence:

1. Nonviolence is a way of life for courageous people.
2. Nonviolence seeks to win friendship and understanding.
3. Nonviolence seeks to defeat injustice, not people.
4. Nonviolence holds that suffering can educate and transform.
5. Nonviolence chooses love instead of hate.
6. Nonviolence believes that the universe is on the side of justice.
