      17th Annual African American History Awareness Competition

      The 17th Annual African American History Awareness Competition (also known as The Black History Quiz Bowl) is expected to be one of the largest ever. Raleigh’s Omega Psi Phi Fraternity graduate chapter, Iota Iota, founded this event and has sponsored it annually since 2002, usually during Black History Month.  Teams compete by answering questions centered around local, national and international African American history in a multi-round format throughout the event. All participants will receive a Certificate of Participation signed and presented by Robert L. Barren Jr., Iota Iota chapter Basileus, along with other gifts commemorating the event. This year’s event will include a collection to benefit local charities and the presentation of Local Legend awards, recognizing the outstanding historical impact of members of the local community. Traditionally, the winning high school team goes on to compete at the statewide level for a chance to compete at the annual Sixth District competition, to be held this year in early May in Durham, NC.    Students in 3rd grade or above are encouraged to participate. Only one team per elementary, middle or high school may register to compete. Schools and organizations that serve multiple educational levels (elementary, middle and high), may register one team to compete at each level.  For example, a K-8 school may field one elementary and one middle school team. A complete list of 2019 rules will be made available to all registered participants. Sign up your team here at Eventbrite! No sign up/ticket needed to attend! We look forward to seeing you on February 23rd!
