MLK Day 2022 Youth SpeakDate/Time
Date(s) - 01/21/2022
It’s that time of year again and Amplify GR is SUPER excited to partner with Rockford Construction once again to present the 2nd Annual Youth Speak Social Media Competition. Last year we had about 15 entries overall with some amazing entries to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. The first-place prize was awarded to a young lady who submitted an architectural media tour through Dr. King’s childhood home. It was amazing!
Please help us spread the word so that we can get even more entries from the communities’ children this time around. Last year we collaborated with Duke Turley of Dreams Take Work to make sure that every child received some sort of acknowledgment for their hard work and creativity. This year we hope to do the same thing as a reminder that with a little elbow grease, all dreams can come true.
This is one of AGR’s favorite youth engagement activities. We can wait to see or hear what comes “out of the mouths of babes” this year!
