Willingboro & Vicinity ACT-SO
Afro Academic Cultural Technological Scientific Olympics
The ACT-SO program centers around the dedication and commitment of community volunteers and business leaders; to serve as mentors and coaches to promote academic and artistic excellence among high school students. Students who participate in ACT-SO compete with other students locally (local winners nationally) in up to 3 of 33 categories which includes STEM, Humanities, Performing Arts, Visual Arts, Business and Culinary Arts. The local competition serves to showcase the hard work students have put in all year long. Students also have the opportunity to win medals, prizes & scholarships locally & nationally. At our ACT-SO meetings and workshops, we will teach students how to successfully compete against counterparts by inspiring them to do their absolute best, and teaching the importance of preparation and presentation. ACT-SO pushes students to reach their maximum potential.
