Local students are honoring Dr. Martin Luther King by spreading his message through a creative medium.
The Erie Art Museum is hosting the second annual MLK art competition, which asks students to create artwork depicting a message of non-violence.
Entries were separated into categories by grade, and then judged by a panel. Then on Sunday the public can fill out a ballot to vote for their favorites.
The Youth Leadership Institute of Erie put the competition together.
"This allows our young people to express themselves in a way they normally wouldn't," said Edison Nicholson, who helped organize the show. "It also gives them an opportunity to reflect back on Martin Luther King's dream and how its realized today."
The winners will be revealed at a special show at the museum on Sunday night.
