Thirty years ago the Detroit Branch NAACP, Coca-Cola, and the Detroit Public Schools district came together to allow students to portray their knowledge of civil rights history.
The Art & Essay competition is an excellent opportunity for elementary through high school students to showcase their artistic talents through various pens and brushes. Students have the opportunity to demonstrate through their talents “What The Civil Rights Struggle Means to Me.”
Over the past 30 years this partnership has distributed more than $250,000 in scholarship dollars to students in the community. Students have the opportunity to win first, second, or third place in each category.
30th Annual Detroit Branch NAACP Art & Essay Contest Deadline is Friday, January 31, 2020 at 6 p.m.
