Black History Month Essay & Poster Contest 2019

Dear Teachers & Students of all CLF Schools,

This opportunity is available to any CLF school students.

By announcing before the holiday break, we thought this would give our tigers more time to prepare for the 2019 Black History Month Essay & Poster Contest.

We did so because this year’s THEME is: STUDENTS’ CHOICE!! That’s right, YOU decide. (Ask your teacher for help if you need guidance).

As in year’s past, CLF will invite finalists to represent their school along with their distinguished parent(s)/guardian(s) to our 2019 Black History Month Reception. This year, we are pleased to be hosting the reception in Upper Marlboro, MD at our gorgeous CMIT South Campus.

Remember, among the finalists invited, (3) winners from each division will be announced and $50 gift cards awards to each winner.

Please reference the 2019 BHM Poster/flyer circulating around your school for more details & scoring rubric.

Final drafts will be collected by your language arts teacher on or before January 25th.



Warmest regards,


Mark J. Sutherland
