2012 Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics Begins

Saturday, March 24, 2012- ACT-SO participants, judges, coaches and supporters look on as the 2012 competition begins.

Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics (ACT-SO) is a yearlong scholastic enrichment program where participants flex the most important muscle – “the mind.” Just as an athlete trains before a competition, so must the ACT-SO participant with coaches and mentors in preparing for the local competition.

ACT-SO is not a talent show, but an opportunity for the youth to showcase their skills and abilities in the sciences, humanities, performing arts, visual arts, and business. ACT-SO is where the next millennium architects, scientists, musicians, poets, dancers, artists and entrepreneurs are discovered.  For more information on ACT-SO please contact the Detroit Branch NAACP youth department.
