Afro-academic, Cultural, Technological & Scientific Olympics

Join Us on Saturday, April 28, 2018

What is ACT-SO? 

The Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological & Scientific Olympics (ACT-SO), the “Olympics of the Mind” is a major national youth initiative of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).

ACT-SO is rooted in the firm conviction that African-Americans can succeed and compete at the same or superior level as their counterparts in classrooms, boardrooms and laboratories across this nation and abroad. The objective of ACT-SO is to prepare, recognize and reward African-American youth who exemplify scholastic and artistic excellence.  Gold winners may compete at the ACT-SO National Competition held at the NAACP’s Convention held each July.

Benefits of Participation

ACT-SO is a learning experience that focuses on achievement, mentorship, and enrichment. The local competition showcases the hard work and academic and artistic talents of the students. Students receive support from mentors and develop the skills and tools for goal setting, self-confidence, presentation skills and more. This program gives students the opportunity to positively impact their communities and society. It also provides the community an opportunity to work with and recognize the “leaders of tomorrow!”
