The 5th Annual RTIEL Youth Leadership Essay Contest is underway!!! High school students (i.e., grades – 9 -12) attending several high schools in Fort Worth Texas (i.e., Dunbar, Eastern Hills, and O.D. Wyatt) will have the opportunity to compete for an all-expense paid trip to the RTIEL Youth Civil Rights Leadership Tour, which will consist of visits to historic sites in the cities of Montgomery and Selma, Alabama and various youth summit activities hosted by the National Voting Rights Museum and Institute. The tour will culminate with attendance at the 50th Annual “Bloody Sunday” Re-enactment crossing the Edmund Pettus Bridge (see http://www.nps.gov/nr/travel/civilrights/al4.htm). The tentative dates for the tour are March 3 – March 5, 2017.
