Tops honors Black History Month with 3rd annual contest for 3rd-8th graders


Mon, Jan 16th 2023 11:40 am

Tops Friendly Markets announced “a unique opportunity for students in grades 3-8 to shine!”

A press release stated, “February is Black History Month and, for over 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.

“Please submit a paragraph, or more, by Feb. 17, 2023, 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.”

The press release continued, “Tops has been dedicated to educating the community about Black History Month for the past three decades, and the past few years 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 to open up important dialogue with their students.”
