Help us get to the ACT-SO Olympics

$15,369 of $18,000 goal

Raised by 78 people in 4 months
OUR STORY
This past fall, 127 students from 8 participating high schools in Columbia applied to partake in the ACT-SO program. Of those students, 28 successfully completed the program – having been mentored by a team of 10 volunteers for over 50 cumulative hours.

On Saturday, April 14th, those students competed in the local ACT-SO competition - competing in categories such as performing arts, STEM, Visual Arts, and entrepreneurship. The gold medalists will represent their high school, the city of Columbia and the state of South Carolina at the National NAACP ACT-SO Olympics this July 12th-15th in San Antonio, Texas.

There, they will compete (in their respective categories) against students from across the country for an opportunity to win up to $5,000 in scholarships and prizes.


WE NEED YOUR HELP
We need your help getting our ninteen (19) students to the NAACP National ACT-SO Olympics.  It will cost an average of $790.00 per student to travel and participate in the nationals.  We need sponsors and donors who are willing to help offset the cost of expenses during the trip.

Our parents & students are working hard to raise money for this trip.  Won't you consider making a donation to help us offset some of our expenses. No amount is too small and every cent goes towards ACT-SO expenses.

Every dollar raised goes directly towards this trip.  Our director, Shaun Adams, is overseeing the withdrawal and use of funds for this campaign.
