Black History Month Competition: October 2012
The Winners are Announced!
This year’s topical theme was the 2012 London Olympic Games and Black Olympic Heroes through the ages. We studied 15 iconic Olympic athletes from different countries and times: 1908 through to the present day. Not all the athletes had an easy journey to fame and success; many had to overcome problems such as racism and poverty to reach their goal. However, all of the athletes share the following qualities: self-belief, commitment and an ability to work hard, never give up and give of their best to reach a goal! The lesson these inspirational athletes teach us is that hard work and determination can help us achieve our dreams in life!
