Black History Month Challenge: $20K in Scholarship Prizes


EVERFI has launched the Black History Month Challenge to promote youth education on race and equity—and we want your credit union to be part of it!

About the Black History Month Challenge
A first-of-its-kind virtual competition to inspire middle and high school students and spark critical conversations.

Participating students will be guided through four digital lessons reflecting on some of the lesser-known stories about the Black experience in the U.S. and celebrate the remarkable accomplishments of Black business titans and medical trailblazers.

After completing the 30-minute course, participants will complete a capstone essay sharing what they’ve learned and how they plan to keep the conversation going about Black history going year-round in their community.

Entry deadline is Feb. 28, 2021.
