Welcome to the Black History Month Challenge!

Welcome to the Black History Month Challenge!

To understand what’s happening in our world today, we must reflect on what has happened in the past. The Black History Month Challenge provides a fun and interactive way to explore some of the lesser known stories about the Black experience in the US. We’ll also celebrate the remarkable accomplishments of Black business titans and explore Black contributions to medicine. Let’s do this!

The Black History Month Challenge is designed for high school students and will be available from February 1-March 7, 2022. The scholarship essay contest is open to all students ages 13-18.

Prizes

After completing the 30-minute course, you will have the opportunity to submit a short essay and compete to win a college scholarship! Details below.
