The Friends of Jackie Robinson Park want to take 50 young people for a long ride on Saturday, Feb. 26.
All the youth have to do write an essay or poem, and there is no particular limit on how much they may write. All entrants must be 10 to 14 years old and attend an Antelope Valley School.
Students must write on either subject: “What have you learned from Black history?” or “Write about your favorite African American inventor.”
The theme of the contest is Get on the Bus!
