A model of the Martin Luther King Memorial is set up during a press conference of the The Martin Luther King Memorial Foundation to launch the "Kids for King...Share Your Dream...Build the Dream" program at the Tidal Basin in NW Washington DC, Monday, August 22, 2005. The program commemorates the historic 1963 March on Washington. Youth between first and 12th grades will be asked to help build a memorial to Dr. King on the National Mall by writing a short essay about their dream for a better America, with 50 youths selected during a random drawing flown to DC along with two parents for the memorial's groundbreaking ceremony in the Fall of 2006. The MLK Memorial will be built along the Tidal Basin. ( Astrid Riecken / The Washington Times )
