Community SpotlightAs yesterday marked the beginning of Black History Month, there are a series of events happening all month long, that highlight various individuals and the contributions they’ve made to American history.

The John A. Logan Museum located in Murphysboro, will host an essay contest for elementary, middle, and high school students in the Murphysboro area.

The contest recognizes and celebrates the many achievements of black Americans and their roles in U.S. history. Contestants are encouraged to focus on notable African Americans and the Civil War.

All essays must be submitted by February 15. The contest winners will receive a cash prize and be announced at a grand reveal, on February 26, 2017.

Because the contest celebrates Black History Month, the topics will focus on notable African Americans and the Civil War.
