Young artists from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee are celebrating Black History Month by expressing their creativity and paying homage to their heroes.
Students created artworks of influential African Americans, including historical figures, world leaders, athletes and celebrities. This is the fourth annual Black History Month Art Contest sponsored by U.S. Cellular.
Finalists were picked based on creativity, quality, interpretation, clarity of theme and overall impression. The students’ artworks have been displayed in local U.S. Cellular stores throughout the month, allowing community members the opportunity to vote on their favorite.
The top three vote-getters will be announced in March and receive cash prizes of $250 for 1st Place, $150 for 2nd place and $100 for 3rd place.
