Get your students involved in an online contest for Black History Month!
Every day of February 2014, the Minnesota Historical Society and African American Registry will post a video, featuring a Minnesota student talking about an African American from Minnesota's past, but will not reveal that person's name. Students from around the state can then go onto the Minnesota Historical Society's Facebook page and post in the comments the answer to the question in each day's video. A winner will be drawn from all the correct answers.
A winner will be named each day. Each week, all seven winners will be entered into a drawing for another prize.
After the contest is over, the list of videos will be posted on this website for future use by teachers and students, in Minnesota and beyond.
