The 12 Rotary Clubs of Spokane teamed with the Diversity Offices of School District 81 and Gonzaga University to host a Martin Luther King essay contest beginning this year.
The Cheney Rotary Club of Cheney sponsored the competition at Cheney High School, receiving many essays and selecting one winner: senior Aleksander Chernega.
For writing the best essay tying Martin Luther King’s ideals to Rotary’s Four-Way Test – Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build goodwill and better friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned? – Chernega won $250.
