Student Essay Contest

Strong Men and Women in Virginia History Student Writing Contest

High school students are invited to honor outstanding African Americans by participating in Dominion Energy and the Library of Virginia’s Strong Men & Women in Virginia History student writing contest. Students may submit their 400-word essay by midnight, November 22, for a chance to win an Apple MacBook Air and $1,000 for their school!

Here is the prompt: "Enslaved Africans were brought to the Virginia colony in 1619. During 400 years of slavery, emancipation, and the fight for civil rights, African Americans have persevered and made an impact in their communities, states, and nation. What lessons can you learn from that perseverance? Why is it important to study their struggles and triumphs, and how can you ensure that their contributions to American history and culture are not forgotten?"
