Come out and support area students while learning a little more about everybody's history. The Bloomington Black History Month Essay Contest was designed to encourage youth to learn more about the contributions African Americans have made to our country. By learning about and celebrating these achievements, students learn not only about African American history but American history. The contest was open to 4th-12th graders living or attending school in Bloomington, Indiana.
Thank you to all of the students along with their teachers and parents for participating in this effort. You rock! A special thanks to the Black History Month Essay judges, MCCSC Superintendent Dr. John Coopman, Monroe County Branch NAACP, McDonald's Corporation, and City of Bloomington Community and Family Resources Department for their support.
