The NAACP Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics is a yearlong achievement program designed to recruit, stimulate, and encourage high academic and cultural achievement among African-American high school students. Led by Martha Plowden, Ph. D, this program has consistently produced local and national winners. This past June, the first ACT-SO Boot Camp, including contestants from across the state, was held at Spelman College. Sponsorships are invited to expand participation through media publicity, travel to competitions and awards. Workshops start in August for competitions in March and April. The talent showcase is now an annual event in final preparation for the National ACT-SO Competitions in conjunction with the national NAACP convention.
