Prior to Christmas break, Jesuit Academy 5th and 6th grade students participated in a Martin Luther King, Jr. poster and essay contest between several schools in the North Omaha area. The students were given the challenge to create a work that represented Dr. King's dream of changing the world through non-violence. The 5th grade did so through posters, while the 6th grade did so through essays.
We're pleased to report that Jesuit Academy 5th grader Corben won first place in the poster contest and Jesuit Academy 6th grader Steven won first place in the essay contest! Both were presented with their awards by Fr. Hendrickson, President of Creighton University, at an MLK celebration Monday evening at Creighton University.
A big congratulations to these two young men!
