Lift every voice black history month writing contest

Lift Every Voice

Funded by the Cerritos College Foundation

Write about a Black public figure or collective—activist, artist, writer, athlete, educator, filmmaker, politician, business leader, influencer, etc.—who you believe hasn't gotten the recognition they deserve. In a 750-word original essay or a poem of any length, sing their praises, say their names, let the world know who they are, what they’ve done, and why you think the rest of the world should know their work. 

Prizes: 1st place ($125), 2nd place ($75), 3rd place ($50) + publication on the English department website

Deadline Extended: March 15th (11:59 pm)
