Entries sought for Poster Contest

In observance of Black History Month, Marshall University students are invited to participate in a Black History Poster Contest.

The poster entries should capture Carter G. Woodson’s goals for preserving and observing black history. Woodson is considered the Father of Black History.

Deadline for poster entries is Dec. 1, and the winner will be announced before Christman break. There is a $100 prize.

Participants are asked to give the Marshall School of Journalism and Mass Communications permission to print and use their submissions, which will be unveiled to the university community on or before Jan. 15 as part of the announcement of the 2017 Black History Month events.

Submissions should be suitable for an 11’x15’ poster, and standard paper size for emailing. Entries can be sent to Professor Burnis Morris at [email protected]. Morris is the Carter G. Woodson professor on Marshall’s campus.
