DeKalb ACT-SO Winners compete at national level

NAACP DeKalb ACT-SO program had an award ceremony recognize the hard work of talented students that competed to go the the national competition in several categories.   Shown here are the gold medalist for the area.

All Gold medalist will advance to the National ACT-SO competition July 23-26, 2020.  This year due to COVID-19 the National ACT-SO competition will be virtual.

Our students worked hard and looked forward to the Boston competition all year.  To celebrate their diligence and hard work the ACT-SO Committee is raising funds to take all Gold medalists to the National NAACP convention in October 2020 which was postponed from July.  We are asking our community members to please support us in this effort.
