FEATURING METRO AREA MIDDLE AND HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS
The 100 Black Men of Omaha, Inc.

The goal of the competition is to foster an appreciation of African-American history and culture in Omaha youth. The competition is open to the public at no charge.
Students from area middle schools and high schools will compete for cash prizes and an opportunity to represent the 100 Black Men of Omaha – on a national level – at the 2018
100 Black Men of America’s annual conference in Hollywood, Florida. By marshaling support from the corporate, philanthropic and educational community, this event has been sustained for eighteen years. This year’s event sponsored in part by Cox, OPS and the University of Nebraska at Omaha.
The mission of the 100 is “to improve the quality of life in Omaha by helping our youth reach their fullest potential.” We seek to achieve our mission through Mentoring, Education, Health & Wellness and Economic Empowerment programs.
Today, the 100 is one of over 100 chapters nationally and internationally that make up the 100 Black Men of America, Inc., an alliance of leading African-American men representing a myriad of professions including business, public affairs and government.
