Due February 20th, 2015 - Weeks before he was assassinated, the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his famous sermon, “The Drum Major Instinct,” in which he candidly shared how he wanted to be remembered for his core purpose: to give his life serving others. It’s a call to dedicate our lives to making a better world.

Now it’s your turn to spread the call in the nonprofit EduGuide Challenge. U.S. students in grades 6-12 are invited to submit their own 1-5 minute video message. Communicate your core purpose and what you want to contribute to the world, including how you will use your education to prepare.

Both traditional speeches and creative delivery styles are welcome. While Dr. King presented his message in a sermon, your video should be based on whatever inspires you to make a difference in people’s lives. Judges will take the student's grade level and chosen presentation style into consideration in selecting a range of winners. Group submissions will also be considered.
