On behalf of the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s Office of the Vice President for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and our partners at UAB Student Diversity and Multicultural Programs, the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, Urban Impact Inc., United Way of Central Alabama, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, Birmingham Southern College, Jefferson State Community College, Samford University, and the City of Birmingham, we would like to invite your students to participate in our annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. “Word From the Mountain Top” oratory contest.

The purpose of the contest is to recognize and give students the opportunity to reflect on the words of Dr. King while connecting his message to issues facing our nation in the 21st century. In addition, participants are provided an opportunity to display and enhance their own writing and communication skills through oration.  Drawing inspiration from his ‘Beyond Vietnam’ speech, participants are asked to answer the question “What would you say to encourage listeners to act to preserve the best in our U.S. democratic society?”

The top three written speeches from each division (high school and college) will be selected as finalists and invited to participate in the oratorical portion of the competition. Prizes will be awarded to all finalists, and a grand prize will be given to the overall winner from each division.

Click here for a link to contest rules, regulations, and more information

The deadline to submit speeches is January 4, 2019, by 5:00 p.m.

The purpose of the contest is to recognize and give students the opportunity to reflect on the words of Dr. King while connecting his message to issues facing our nation in the 21st century. In addition, participants are provided an opportunity to display and enhance their own writing and communication skills through oration.  Drawing inspiration from his ‘Beyond Vietnam’ speech, participants are asked to answer the question “What would you say to encourage listeners to act to preserve the best in our U.S. democratic society?”

The top three written speeches from each division (high school and college) will be selected as finalists and invited to participate in the oratorical portion of the competition. Prizes will be awarded to all finalists, and a grand prize will be given to the overall winner from each division.

Click here for a link to contest rules, regulations, and more information

The deadline to submit speeches is January 4, 2019, by 5:00 p.m.

The Salvation Army is attempting to break a Guinness Book of World Record for the 'Largest Human Image of a Shield'! The event is to commemorate the launch of the Angel Tree and Red Kettle season for The Salvation Army.

Join us at the UAB Campus Green on Friday, November 16, 2018. Event registration begins at 5 PM and will close at 6:30 PM. Every participant will receive a free hooded sweatshirt, which is mandatory for each person to wear during the formation of the human shield. We must stay in formation for a total of 5 minutes in order to break the record.

The actual record attempt set-up will begin at 6:30 PM with the timed record attempt at 7 PM. Everyone is welcome! Bring your friends, your small group, your sorority or fraternity, your family, or your neighbors! We need 319 people to break the current record and we want 450 participants! We will have a bounce house for children, hot chocolate and snacks.

Let's have fun and make history together!

*Children are welcome to participate, BUT please note they must be able to stand in the formation area for at least 30 minutes for group formation/organization and timed record attempt. If you think your child will be unable to stand in the area for that long, please reconsider as any break from the official count during the record attempt will forfeit the attempt.
