In honor of February’s designation as Black History Month, I am hosting a “Black History Month Art Celebration” for students grade K-12 throughout the 39th Senate District.
This year’s theme “What Black History Means to Me” will allow students to express their appreciation for Black History Month through art.
Students may submit original artwork below in the following mediums: painting, drawing, photography, poems and essays. The entry form below must be completed and signed by a parent, teacher or guardian.
It is my hope that participating in this celebration, students will be inspired to think of what Black History Month means to them personally and to gain a better understanding of the contributions of African-Americans to our nation’s growth and prosperity.
Submitted work will be showcased on my website and each participating student will receive a congratulatory letter and certificate.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact my office at 845-567-1270.
1) Upload your submissions by February 28, 2018.
Please upload your artwork and fill out the form below. Thank you.
