Tops honors Black History Month with second annual contest for 3rd-5th graders


Mon, Jan 17th 2022 01:35 pm

Tops Friendly Markets has a unique opportunity for students in grades 3-5 grade to shine.

A press release stated, “February is Black History Month and, for more than three decades, Tops has been proud to salute and educate the community about those who have accomplished remarkable achievements in their lifetime. Now it is your turn as the youth of America to honor those in your own lives whom you admire most who are of African American descent: your mom, pastor, coach – even your big brother.

“Submit a paragraph (or more) by Feb. 18, describing why they are someone you look up to for a chance to win not only $100 for your school, but a $50 Tops gift card for yourself so that you can treat your family, or the person nominated, to a special dinner and dessert.”

Tops Public and Media Relations Manager Kathy Sautter said, “Tops has been dedicated to educating the community about Black History Month for the past three decades, and last year we were overwhelmed by the heartfelt essays we received that we thought we’d once again encourage the youth of our community to share with us whom they admire. We hope that area teachers and afterschool programs embrace this unique opportunity with their students.”
