Local law firm Holland & Knight announced the winners of its annual Dream Scholarship Essay Contest: A Call for Tomorrow's Leaders.
The contest challenges high school seniors to examine the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and share their dreams for advancing his legacy of equality and leadership. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Dr. King's "Letter from a Birmingham Jail," students were given a passage from the letter and asked whether or not his words still hold true today.
