Voting begins in UScellular’s 6th Annual Black History Month Art Contest

February 1, 2021

UScellular announced today that public voting is now open in the company’s 6th annual Black History Month Art Contest with Boys & Girls Clubs of the Tennessee Valley. For the first time, voting is available online, and the East Tennessee community can visit to vote for their favorite piece of original art.

In January, Boys & Girls Clubs of the Tennessee Valley members created artwork in recognition of influential Black people from around the globe, including historical figures, world leaders, athletes and celebrities. The 10 finalists were chosen by representatives from the Boys & Girls Club and local UScellular leaders based on creativity, quality, interpretation, clarity of theme and overall impression. Voting will remain open through Feb. 28, and anyone 18 or older can vote once for their favorite.

The top three vote-getters will be announced in March and prizes include gift cards in the following amounts:

  • $250 for 1st Place
  • $150 for 2nd Place
  • $100 for 3rd Place

“We are once again thrilled to work with Boys & Girls Clubs of Tennesesee Valley on this annual contest to honor Black icons and showcase youth in our community,” said Nathan Waddell, director of sales for UScellular in East Tennessee. “This year’s art certainly highlights the artistic talent among the Club members. We encourage the community to check out the art and vote online, and we look forward to celebrating the winners in March.”

The public can vote for their favorite artwork here.
