Chattanooga ACT-SO held their 12th Annual Competition and Awards Ceremony in April. The NAACP's Afro-Academic, Cultural, Technological and Scientific Olympics is a yearlong achievement program designed to recruit, stimulate, and encourage high academic achievement among African-American high school students, and includes 26 categories of competition. Since it's inception, over a quarter of a million students have participated in ACT-SO related events.
As a result of this year's competition, seven students were awarded gold medals and will represent Chattanooga-ACT-SO at the National ACT-SO Competition which will be held in Las Vegas. In the past seven years, Chattanooga ACT-SO has won five national medals at the National Competition.
