 Local U.S. Cellular associates joined Boys & Girls Club members Jan. 21 to kick off the 6th annual Black History Month Art Contest. U.S. Cellular associates provided resources/art supplies, and club members created original 8.5 x 11 pieces of artwork in recognition of influential African-Americans, including historical figures, world leaders, athletes and celebrities. Ten finalists will be chosen and then displayed in U.S. Cellular stores in February, where the Lynchburg community will be invited to vote for their favorites. “This contest is a fun and educational way to celebrate our country’s diversity, and we look forward to seeing the talent and creativity that the kids bring to their art,” said Bertram Daniels, area sales manager for U.S. Cellular. “It’s great to team up with the Boys & Girls Club to showcase youth in honor of Black History Month.” The 10 finalists’ artwork will be chosen by representatives from the Boys & Girls Club based on creativity, quality, interpretation, clarity of theme and overall impression. Those creations will be displayed in select U.S. Cellular stores from Feb. 1 – Feb 29, and anyone 18 and older is invited to visit a store and vote for their favorite. The top three vote-getters will be announced in March and prizes include $500 for 1st Place, $200 for 2nd Place and $150 for 3rd Place.
