UScellular has announced that public voting is now open in the company’s sixth annual Black History Month Art Contest with Boys & Girls Clubs of Wayne County. For the first time, voting is available online, and the Wayne County community can visit UScellular’s Black History Month Art Contest to vote for their favorite piece of original art.
In January, Boys & Girls Clubs of Wayne County members created artwork in recognition of influential Black people from around the globe, including historical figures, world leaders, athletes and celebrities. The 10 finalists were chosen by representatives from the Boys & Girls Club based on creativity, quality, interpretation, clarity of theme and overall impression. Voting will remain open through Feb. 28, and anyone 18 or older can vote once for their favorite.
The top three vote-getters will be announced in March and prizes include gift cards in the following amounts:
- $250 for 1st Place
- $150 for 2nd Place
- $100 for 3rd Place
“We are once again thrilled to work with Boys & Girls Clubs of Wayne County on this annual contest to honor Black icons and showcase youth in our community,” said Brett Lancaster, store manager at UScellular in Goldsboro. “This year’s art certainly highlights the artistic talent among the Club members. We encourage the community to check out the art and vote online, and we look forward to celebrating the winners in March.”
The public can vote for their favorite artwork for members of Boys & Girls Clubs of Wayne County here.
