A sophomore at Union High School is awarded a $1,000 scholarship for winning this year's One Gas Martin Luther King Junior Oratorical Contest.

Kriti Gopi delivered her rendition of doctor King's "I have a dream speech" on Thursday. She says it took her about a week to memorize the 17-minute long speech and said to her that it means that everyone has a voice.

"I don't know if Martin Luther King jr actually thought that what he said would affect people today and impact people today but I think it means that to all of us that we can still make a difference," said Gopi.

This is the 26th year that ONE Gas has served as a contest sponsor.
