Congresswoman Robin Kelly

Representing the 2nd District of Illinois


Congresswoman Kelly's Black History Month Video Contest

History is full of African Americans who have made vital contributions to the development of the United States. During this year's Black History Month, students will have the opportunity to honor these heroes by submitting a 90 second max video which answers one of these questions:

  • Why is it important to celebrate Black History Month?
  • What moment in black history is most relevant to you?
  • How do you think schools should celebrate Black History Month?

To help students create their video, I created a video guide to assist with the technical side of editing and submitting the final video. 

UPDATE: New Deadline is March 2, 2016 at 6:00pm CST.
113th Congress Finalists: for Michellelin Oduro of Richton Square School for New Beginnings Learning Academy in South Holland for the STEM Academy in Calumet City
