Please share and help spread the word—Uniting Through History’s Hip History Contest is live!
We’re inviting all middle and high school students to use an excerpt from Creating the Black Utopia of Buxton, Iowa to bring the history of Buxton alive through the arts. Prizes include a Zoom interview with our celebrity judges, plus a chance to win from $250 to $2,000, and more.
Individual students can enter. Teachers can use the contest as a class assignment. Parents can encourage their children to enter. The possibilities are endless.
Our Hip History Contest Submission Checklist provides a quick overview of what’s needed to enter. But to make sure entries are accepted, entrants will need to read the contest rules and FAQs referenced on the checklist. Of course, they’ll want to check out our prizes and fantastic judges—make sure to check out the judges’ bios and look out for their interviews, which we will be posting throughout the contest.
Sign up for our newsletter to be notified of exciting new contest news and entries.
We couldn’t do this without the generous donation from Musco Sports Lighting, LLC and the participation of our judges. They have our sincerest gratitude.
We are so excited! It’s going to be fun!
