Please submit the student application and  request guidelines for any of the competitions that students are considering entering.  Please share  student applications with other students, family,  and friends  that might also be interested in the program . I look forward to having the students in our ACT-SO Enrichment program. 


I have shared a poster of the students who represented our branch and our Local National Winners from the 2022  NAACP National  Convention ACT-SO COMPETITION  in Atlantic City, NJ.

  ACT-SO’s Founder ACT-SO was founded in 1978 by author and journalist Vernon Jarrett. The program is intended to provide recognition to young people who could demonstrate academic, scientific, and artistic achievement, allowing young people to gain recognition equal to that often achieved by entertainers and athletes  




I look forward to receiving returning student applications by Jan 30, 2023  and having all students attend ACT-SO informational on Feb 4, 2023 via Zoom.
