The Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Drum Major for Justice Advocacy Competition is a contest designed to motivate high school students to excel in education. The Competition encourages students to express their views on a topic and focuses on the ability of the students to communicate orally and in writing.

The National Bar Association’s (NBA) first annual. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Drum Major for Justice Advocacy Competition was held at its 75th Annual Convention in Washington, D.C. in 2000. Because of the overwhelming success of the Competition, the NBA, with the support of the National Bar Institute (NBI) adopted it as a national program.
