The Vermont Bar Association Diversity Section and Young Lawyers Division are co-sponsoring the 2021 Martin Luther King, Jr. Poster-Essay Contest.

Vermont middle schoolers can create a poster and write a short essay with their interpretation of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s quote, “In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies but the silence of our friends.”

Winners will be awarded at the statehouse and will be displayed at the Vermont Supreme Court and published in the Bar Journal.

Submissions are due by Dec. 18, see for details.
