Black History Essay Contest

Open to all students in the 6th-8th grades.  Our history and communities are full of African American heroes. We’d like you to tell us about one you admire!  We’re encouraging students throughout Nevada to write a 250-word essay describing an African American hero who has been influential and important in history, our community, or in the culture.  Some of these heroes may be famous, some may not, but here’s your opportunity to tell us about a hero you look up to!

Essay contest will open on February 1st and close on February 28, 2023. Entries must be received and/or postmarked by no later than February 28, 2023. Participants can submit via email or postal.
