A Danbury student has won first place in a statewide Martin Luther King, Jr. essay contest sponsored by Senator Chris Murphy. Broadview Middle School sixth-grader Caroline D’Angelo wrote essay her as an assignment for her social studies class.
D'Angelo wrote about the changes she believes would make a better world for everyone.
Murphy launched the essay contest this year to encourage young people to commit to making Dr. King’s dream and the dreams of their own a reality. Murphy’s office said it received thousands of entries for the statewide contest.
D'Angelo says justice and equality come to my mind whenever she sees people not being treated respectfully.
