The winners of the King County Civil Rights Commission's annual Martin Luther King Essay Contest were also honored during the celebration. Three students from Open Window School in Bellevue took top marks in the contest, which centered on a theme from Dr. King: "So long as I do not firmly and irrevocably possess the right to vote I do not possess myself. I cannot make up my mind - it is made up for me. I cannot live as a democratic citizen, observing the laws I have helped to enact - I can only submit to the edict of others."
