In honor of Black History Month, the Field Library presents the following contest.
Choose an African-American that has inspired you and discuss in 250-300 words his or her contributions to this country and how this person has influenced your life.
Two winners will be chosen: one for grades 6-9 and one for grades 10-12. Each winner will receive two passes to the UA Cortlandt Stadium 11 Movie Theater in the Cortlandt Town Center.
Winners will be chosen based on essay content and form. Entries may be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or in person at the reference desk. Include your name, age, grade, and contact information on your submission.
The deadline is Saturday, February 18th.
Many thanks to Jose Almonte, manager UA Cortlandt Stadium 11, for generously donating the passes.
