Albany - - An Albany church is calling for young people in the community to help them honor Dr. Martin Luther King. 

Greater 2nd Mt. Olive is holding a series of events this month to get young people excited about the Civil Rights hero.

They're holding an essay contest for elementary, middle, and college students. First place winners in each category will receive $200. The church is also getting youngsters in the community involved in a drill team. The group will perform routines that quote words from Dr. King's speeches.  

"It's only right to pay his life justice for what he's done for what he's paid for the community, nation and world and trying our best to honor him the best way to possible which is doing something that he stood for, speaking out against violence," says Assistant Pastor Brandon Dotson.

The church will hold a MLK recognition ceremony Saturday, January 19th at the ASU Acad Auditorium at 10 am.

It will be followed by a "youth against violence rally" into the community.

On Monday the 21st, there will be a MLK Day March beginning at ASU at 9 am. The events are open to the public.
