Martin Luther King Day Collegiate Challenge:
We have many ways to celebrate MLKDay. SUNY Delhi celebrated this special day by submitting videos to remember Dr. King and answer his question to us: "What Are You Doing For Others?" After receiving the videos, a vote was made for first, second and third place submissions. Winners received $100, $50 and $25 gift cards to Barnes & Noble. Through the viewing and voting, we want to congratulate the winners of the MLKDay Challenge! The grand prize winners were the Brothers of Delta Omega Epsilon! Second place went to the SUNY Delhi Psychology Club. Third place was awarded to AnnaMae Fingar, Margaret Wilmot, Ti'Ana Trotman and Diane Perez. To all who participated, thank you for showing your support to the MLK challenge!
