To enter the Afro-American Newspaper’s Black History Month video contest, students are invited to submit short videos (one and a half to two minutes in length) in response to one or more of the following questions:
- How important is Black History Month to you and should it still be observed?
- Who is the teacher, leader, or mentor who most inspired you?
- Did that person also inspire your career [choice] in any way?
- What historical figure would you like to be remembered most and why?
You can chose the backdrop for your video but your SCHOOL’S NAME should be prominently featured. All videos should begin with you giving your name, your school’s name and identifying your class and teacher. Submissions should be e-mailed to AFRONewsBlackHistory@gmail.com by Monday, March 16, 2015. Only the winning videos will be posted, and those students will be invited to the annual awards event to be held on May 11, 2015, at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum.
