MLK 2017 Global Hero Project

 The Global Hero Project was created with the goal of including the international students’ community in the campus-wide celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr., at Washington State University.  In partnership with International Programs and the International Center, the MLK 2017 Global Hero Project is an avenue to include the voices of international civil rights leaders to the campus conversation. 

The Global Hero Project invites international students to submit an essay and/or a creative writing work about a civil rights leader from their country who has been a source of inspiration.  The project is looking to showcase international figures who have advocated social justice by being a voice for the oppressed and persecuted, defended the poor, or have self-sacrificed for something greater than a political agenda.  Scholarships will be awarded to the top 3 submissions.
