The National ACT-SO Organization

The National ACT-SO Organization (Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics) has provided guidance about local and national competitions. With the impact of COVID-19, the local York, James City, Williamsburg NAACP ACT-SO program will host a local competition virtually on Saturday, April 17th, 2021 starting at 10:00AM. The students will perform through Zoom for a panel of judges in various categories which are outlined in the attached document. The fillable application is attached to share with interested students in the areas of STEM, Humanities, Performing Arts, Business, and Visual Arts. Students who win at the Gold level locally will have an opportunity to compete at the national level in July 2021. All expenses are paid by the local organization.

Please share this information with students who may be interested in sharing their talents. The completed application is due on Friday, April 2nd, 2021 and can be emailed to Reginald Fox, ACT-SO Chair at More specific information will be provided to each student about their participation at the local level. If you have any questions, please feel free to email or call me directly at (757) 344-3244. Thank you, and we look forward to hearing from our students.
