St. Cloud Technical & Community College (SCTCC) is hosting an art contest to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. We invite all students to participate.

The artwork will be judged and the top three pieces selected will be awarded trophies for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. The artwork will be displayed at the college the week of January 15. 

Trophies will be awarded on Tuesday, January 22 at 12:30 P.M. in the Eastview Grill & Commons. All contestants will receive a certificate of participation.  You artwork will automatically be eligible for the Dexter R. Stanton Art and Essay Competition at SCSU.

Be HumanKIND: A Way to Community Healing. “Human progress is neither automatic nor inevitable... Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals."
