Calling All Teachers: Black History Month Contest

Black History Month is here, and it’s a wonderful time to bring awareness to the contributions of Black people in American history. Our friends at Knowledge Tree have joined Choose901 and Teach901 to kick off the month in a FUN way! 

Knowledge Tree is launching a special bulletin board contest for teachers across Memphis & Shelby County Schools. This month, you can have fun with creative colors and designs, while teaching the importance of Black History Month in your class.

how to participate

Teachers and students will plan and design a bulletin board with your classroom featuring a theme, an event, or a person related to Black History. See some examples below.
A bulletin board that says milk had a dream what's your dream.

The deadline to participate is February 20 

submission details

After getting creative with your students, teachers can submit the following in a DM by the deadline to @give901 on Instagram: 

  • A photo of your bulletin board;
  • A paragraph explaining the significance of the theme, event, or person featured in your bulletin board;
  • Your name, school name, and the grade level you teach.


We have a team of volunteer judges from across the community that will select 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners. Winners will receive a special prize package from Knowledge Tree

But that’s not all! We’ll also share our top ten finalists on social media for a People’s Choice contest. The People’s Choice winner will receive a prize package from Choose901.
