On Sunday, January 16, 2011 the PTSA and Newark Public Schools will open the doors of Science Park High School in tribute to the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The Living Ground C.A.R.E.S., a non-profit organization dedicated to cultivating and restoring evolving souls, will sponsor MLK S.T.A.T, a tribute and indoor festival in honor of the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. “We will endeavor to inspire and encourage our youth to keep Martin’s dream alive, as well as, encourage students to realize their own dreams during this festive day,” says The Living Ground Director, Howard Scott.

On stage the MLK Student, Talent, Achievement Tribute & Festival will showcase talented students, gifted entertainers, and inspiring motivational speakers while the Atrium will feature a vendor filled marketplace with merchants, food court, music and other festivities. Also joining the celebration will be state and local dignitaries and community leaders to raise the spirits of New Jersey residents. The festival will take place at Science Park High School, 260 Norfolk Street, Newark, NJ from 9:00 AM – 6:00 PM. The event is free and open to the public.

Child development is a wise investment as today’s youth are the decision-makers of tomorrow. Consequently, it is imperative that we endorse positive role models that will help our young people develop good morale foundations to use as a catalyst for their personal and social decision making.
Students, performers, artists, and vendors are all encouraged to visit our website at www.mlkstat.com to register their craft. “We look forward to a big turnout. Everyone loves Martin and everyone loves a festival. Everyone is sure to have a great time,” proclaims Scott.
