Are you a high school student or connected to a high school student who is a budding chemist, scientist, engineer or doctor? If you are or know of one then we encourage you to sign up and register for the Detroit Branch NAACP and Detroit NAACP Youth Council ACT-SO Master Class. ACT-SO is the Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological, Scientific Olympics of the Mind competition for high school students. There are five categories high school students can compete in: Science, Entrepreneurship, Performing Arts, Visual Arts and Humanities. As we prepare for the 2014 ACT-SO season we are offering enrichment Master Classes to help get our future ACT-SO Olympians ready for our 2014 local competitions. ACT-SO contestants are competing for a chance to win Bronze, Silver or Gold Medals. Gold Medal winners qualify for the National NAACP ACT-SO Competition that will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada in July 2014. The first Master Class will be held on Saturday, October 12, 2013 from 10:00 A.M. — 12:00 P.M. at the Detroit Branch NAACP Office. The focus will be on the Science Category. The Master Class will give you an opportunity to meet experts in the Science field, ask questions to help you prepare for the competition, and receive tips and pointers on presentation.
