The Nebraska Black History Art Contest uses art to teach history in the hope that we learn from our past, so we do not repeat its mistakes. We use art and history to teach tolerance, acceptance and the “Golden Rule,” which tells us to treat others as you would want to be treated.
There is still time to Sponsor the 2021 Nebraska Black History Art Contest. Please contact us today! We would also appreciate it if you encouraged, helped and supported the Nebraska students K-12 in your life to enter the 2021 Nebraska Black History Art Contest. Call us at 402-714-6744 or email us.
We would like to thank OPPD our Gold Sponsor. We want to give OPPD a special shout out for printing the 2021 Nebraska Black History Information and Activity Book. We also want to thank our Silver Sponsors
