First lady Casey DeSantis has invited students to participate in academic and creative contests in celebration of Black History Month. The theme for this year’s contests is “Celebrating Public Service,” which pays tribute to African-American leaders who have played prominent roles in public service throughout Florida.
Students in grades K-3 are invited to participate in an art contest while students in grades 4-12 are invited to participate in an essay contest.
Additionally, students, parents, teachers and principals are invited to nominate full-time educators of all student grades for the Black History Month Excellence in Education Award.
