On Saturday, April 12, the Seattle King County NAACP holds its annual competition for the Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics (ACT-SO). The branch will be joined by the National Director Anana Kambon, who will be in Seattle to support the local program.

As the event draws nearer, the Seattle King County NAACP is doing a final push to alert high school students that it is not too late to participate. The ACT-SO program is an opportunity for youth to showcase their talents and abilities. Students receive medals and prizes from local sponsors, and students who receive gold medals on the local level will be eligible to compete at the National Competition in Las Vegas this summer for scholarships and other rewards.

ACT-SO includes 26 categories of competition, including poetry, original essay, photography, dance, or a science project.

In order to be eligible for ACT-SO, students must be African American, enrolled in grades 9-12 and be a citizen of the United States. Saturday's competition will take place at 10:00am at MartinLutherKing Jr.Community Center (3201 E Republican St, Seattle). A photo session with the National Director will be available for anyone interested.
