Martin Luther King Jr.’s iconic “I Have a Dream” speech has been the subject of much conversation and debate for 50 years. King’s dream was that of one person; however, he opened the door for everyone to have a dream.

In the spirit of Martin Luther King Jr., our scholars were encouraged to write about their dreams and hopes for a better world. They were told to consider a social, community, or environmental issue they want to improve. Students were challenged to describe what they were thinking about doing and how their idea might make the world a better place.
