As part of the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. event at the Museum, we will be holding an art contest for Connecticut high school students. The theme of the contest is to honor Dr. King and his legacy visually through works of art.
The top 20 submissions will be displayed at the Yale Peabody Museum during the 2017 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. two-day celebration.
Art work must be received at the Museum during business hours, or by mail, no later than Monday, January 9, 2017.

3rd place winner — $25, a 2017 MLK T-shirt and a Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. book
Art work must be two-dimensional, in any medium, and no larger than 16 x 20 inches.
The Yale Peabody Museum will only accept artwork created by high school students in Connecticut. One artwork per person.
