What is ACT-SO?

The NAACP's Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics (ACT-SO) is a yearlong achievement program designed to recruit, stimulate, and encourage high academic and cultural achievement among African-American high school students.

ACT-SO relies on community volunteers and business leaders to serve as mentors and coaches in promoting academic and artistic excellence among African-American and Hispanic students. By providing an arena where students strive to excel in the sciences, arts and humanities, ACT-SO equips its participants with the skills to live meaningful lives.

ACT-SO includes 26 categories of competition. For more information on specific categories CLICK HERE .

ACT-SO recruits students annually and conducts annual Academic Olympic competitions for students in grades 9th - 12th in NAACP Branches throughout the country. First place local winners then compete with youth from other cities at the National ACT-SO finals held during our National Convention.

ACTSO has positively affected me in so many ways. I was extremely shy and introverted when I first joined the program my freshman year of high school. Ironically enough, that first year I decided to compete in oratory. Facing my fear of public speaking not only helped me out of my shell but it also led me to compete in more speech competitions all over the nation. Beyond all of that, I was also able to network with not only the nations brightest and most talented African-American students but professionals as well. ACTSO was absolutely life changing for me and I believe it helped shape me into the woman that I am today.
