The law firm of Harter Secrest and Emery held a special essay contest to get Rochester City School students talking and to promote Dr. Martin Luther King Junior's message of equality.

Kids in grades 3rd through 5th were asked to write about what his "I Have a Dream" speech means to them.

Twenty-nine classrooms participated in the Martin Luther King, Jr. Essay contest and 222 essays were submitted.

The writers of the three winning essays received a $50 gift card, their teachers were given a $100 gift card for school supplies and the classrooms were given a pizza party and a computer with wireless capability.

"The goal is to just make kids think about what Dr. Martin Luther King's dream means to them and how they can apply those goals in their own life; how they can model that behavior," said Sandra Hahn, Harter Secrest and Emery Law Firm.

The winners were from the Enrico Fermi School, Flower City School and Mary McLeod Bethune School.
